Computed Tomography (CT) is an imaging process which utilizes specialized X-ray equipment to produce three dimensional images or computed tomography scans of the tissues of human body. It also known as Computerized Axial Tomography. Computed tomography scans are used for diagnostic, therapeutic and research purpose. Positron emission tomography is a computed tomography medical procedure in which a computer-generated image of tissues is produced through the detection of gamma rays due to the decay of radionuclides and subsequent release of positrons. Positron emission tomography uses radioactive substances for imaging and further diagnosis of diseases.
Positron Emission Tomography Scanners Market: Drivers & Restraints
Positron emission tomography is the diagnostic medical procedure of producing a positron emission tomography scan to examine metabolic activity of the tissues particularly the brain tissue, using a radioactive isotope administered intravenously. As compared to Computed Tomography (CT) scan and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography has an added advantage of producing images which provide detailed information about the biochemical and physiological functions. Such detailed analysis is required in the diagnosis of cancer which will fuel market growth through 2026. Positron emission tomography (PET) scanning is now covered under the publicly insured healthcare services which is one of the significant driving factors for the growth of the global positron emission tomography scanners market though the high costs of positron emission tomography could potentially restrict market growth particularly in the price sensitive developing countries.

Positron Emission Tomography Scanners Market: Overview
Positron emission tomography is a type of computed tomography technique. Currently, the positron emission tomography scanner manufacturers are involved in the launch of high resolution positron emission tomography scanners which is enhancing the work of researchers’. For instance, the US$ 24 Mn Cardiff University led PET Imaging Centre of the U.K. has launched a PET scanner valued at US$ 2.6 Mn built by General Electric Company. In such a way, PET scanner manufacturers are keen to work in collaboration with universities in order to improve effectiveness of radiotherapy treatment while translating of newer advancements into routinely used PET scanners and further unfold cutting edge opportunities in positron emission tomography.
Positron Emission Tomography Scanners Market: Region-wise Outlook
Depending on geographic regions, global radiofrequency ablation system market is segmented into seven key regions: North America, South America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, Japan, and Middle East & Africa. Owing to the high prices of positron emission tomography, the acceptance of the nuclear medicine diagnostic technique in the developing countries is low though the awareness among its end users is soaring. In the regions of North America and Western Europe, increasing number of publications regarding location of positron emission tomography units, cyclotrons, available funding, licensing of radiopharmaceuticals or tracers and related frameworks is high among the service providers and manufacturers which is aimed at communicating the benefits of positron emission tomography scanners. This is turn has resulted in large revenue contributions by the regions to the global positron emission tomography scanners market.
