The global nuclear medicines market is expected to reach USD 17,600 million by the end of 2020, growing at a CAGR of around 12.29% from 2015 to 2021. Nuclear medicine utilizes the radioisotope for application in diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The drugs containing radionuclides are called radiopharmaceuticals. The uses in radiological imaging include Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computerized tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Proton Emission Tomography (SPECT).
The use of nuclear medicines for diagnostic purposes has gained huge popularity all around the world. There has been increased use of SPECT, PET, CT, and MRI for diagnosis of cardiac diseases, brain diseases, cancer and many others. Nuclear medicine is being used for therapeutic purposes for treatment of Alzheimerdisease, coronary heart diseases, bone metastasis, cancers and different medical conditions affecting the thyroid gland, and scar tissue removal. Advancement in diagnostic imaging is bringing in more use of nuclear medicine. Nuclear cardiology has gained great popularity in North America.
