Imaging Agents - A Worldwide Market Review

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0164325/Imaging-Agents---A-Worldwide-Market-Review.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=prnewswire

Development of contrast agents revolutionized the visualization of organs within the human body. With their inherent ability to bring discrete organs and tissues to investigational scrutiny, imaging agents have undergone immense changes. Technology developments over the last two decades have expanded application roles of imaging agents. Major imaging technologies that presently utilize imaging agents include - x-ray/Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), ultrasound technologies. X-ray contrast media is paving way for emerging segments such as MRI, Ultrasound and diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals. The demand for imaging agents moves in sync with diagnosis and management of several age-related diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurological disease. Reimbursement issues and procedural volumes are two key factors that significantly impact market dynamics.

These and other market data and trends are presented in "Imaging Agents: A Worldwide Market Review" by BizAcumen, Inc. Our reports are designed to be most comprehensive in geographic coverage and vertical market analyses
