Global Positron Emission Tomography Scanners Market Overview
Positron emission tomography is used to study the activity of cells inside the human body. It provides the information on biological activity inside human body in a non-invasive way. Positron emission tomography produces image of the body by detecting the radiation emitted by the radioactive substances which are injected inside the body. These substances are usually radioactive atoms such as carbon-11, fluorine-18, oxygen-15 or nitrogen-13.

Positron emission tomography scanner is a popular medical treatment process because it can provide researchers with metabolic data about disease status. Positron emission tomography has been proved successful in detecting tumours often before they are visible through other conventional examinations. PET can also provide early information about heart disease and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, epilepsy and dementia. Combination of PET with other imaging equipment such as MRI,CT scan and X-ray provides high-resolution images to study physiological behaviour of the body.
