PET imaging has grown over the past two decades to become a mainstay in the diagnosis and management of cancer patients. While oncology scans continue to comprise the majority of PET scans, new radiopharmaceuticals offer the promise of increasing the efficacy of PET imaging for cardiology and neurology clinical applications.

IMV’s 2021 PET Imaging Market Summary Report is based on results from interviews conducted with 495 PET imaging professionals in hospitals and non-hospital sites in the United States. Survey results are projected to the IMV-identified universe of PET imaging facilities to provide nationwide estimates. The data source for this report is IMV’s 2019/2020 PET Imaging Census Database, which has comprehensive profiles of hospital and non-hospital sites performing PET scans using fixed PET scanners (including PET-only, PET/CT, and PET/MR scanners) or mobile PET services in the United States. This census database can be separately licensed by qualified subscribers and includes contact and site-specific information.
