SPECT, a single-photon emission computerized tomography scan is used for the analysis of internal organs, it is a type of nuclear imaging test. Traditional imaging tests such as X-rays are used to examine the structure of the internal organs, while the single-photon emission computerized tomography scanner shows the function of the internal organs. The SPECT scanner consist of radioactive substance and a high resolution camera to form 3D pictures. Healthcare professionals used the SPECT scanner as a diagnostic technique or during the surgery as it is capable of showing that how the blood flows in the heart and other internal organs. SPECT scanner are used to diagnose various disorders such as brain disorder, heart problems and cancer. SPECT scanner are mostly safe, an injection of radioactive tracer is received by the patient. Radioactive tracers are chemical compound in which atoms are replaced by radioisotope, radioactive decay mechanism is used to trace the path that is followed by radioisotope to form product.
Nuclear medicine therapy is performed differently for different indications. While treatment of thyroid cancer or overactive thyroid gland, nuclear medicine is swallowed in a capsule or liquid form. Patients are usually treated as outpatients where single dose is needed in most of the cases. Automated radio synthesis module is used during Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) imaging. It is the most common imaging techniques used in nuclear medicine.
The procedure involving SPECT scanner is simple, radioactive tracer is injected into the blood, this tracer produces gamma rays. The camera captures the signal and computer converts it into pictorial form. The uninfected area of the heart will be light and the area with poor blood flow will be dark. Lack of tracer uptake means that the cell in that area are dead. The SPECT is used to examine blood flow in the heart, both during rest and exercise know as nuclear stress test. SPECT are combined with MRI and CT scans for the detailed morphological and anatomical information. The SPECT scanner has gained popularity are used by healthcare professionals for medical purpose, globally
SPECT Scanning Services Market: Drivers & Restraints
SPECT scanning services market growth is expected to fuel by factors such as research and development on radiopharmaceuticals, increasing incidence of cancer cases, brain disorders, heart problems and bone disorder, rising awareness about SPECT, PET in nuclear medicine, improvement in the SPECT devices. The SPECT scanner are used in wide range of applications for diagnosis and treatment purpose. The SPECT services market is estimated to grow at lucrative growth rate as it is also combined with MRI and CT scans for the detailed information due to better imaging ability and high resolution image
Some factors such as high cost of the device, half-life of the radioactive substance, stringent regulatory guidelines and high capital investment and others are some of the factors expected to hamper the growth of global SPECT scanning services market.
