The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global hybrid imaging market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of various hybrid imaging systems to key end-users, such as hospitals, diagnostic centers, and ambulatory centers.
The growing demand for diagnosing chronic conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and other neurological conditions increases the demand for hybrid imaging. According to CDC estimates in 2013 report updates, 5 million people in the Americas have Alzheimer's disease, and it also estimated that the number is expected to reach to 14 million by 2050. Also, increased awareness among individuals about the advantages of hybrid imaging as compared with individual imaging techniques increases the demand for hybrid imaging.

Technavio healthcare and life sciences analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global hybrid imaging market:
Increasing prevalence of chronic disorders
The increased prevalence of chronic disorders heightens the demand for diagnostic devices. The diagnosis of chronic disorders with hybrid imaging systems is gaining wide acceptance due to its accuracy diagnosis and less diagnosis time. For instance, the incidence of lung cancer is the highest in Europe. In 2014, Hungary had the highest incidence of lung cancer, amounting to approximately 54.26 cases per 100,000 individuals.
Barath Palada, a lead medical imaging analyst at Technavio, says, “Hybrid imaging system scans have become essential diagnostic techniques for diagnosing and treating cancer, as these techniques help physicians evaluate the extent of a disease, determine if the treatment is working, and help detect recurrent tumors.”
Growing adoption of PET/CT hybrid imaging
The market witnesses a growing adoption of PET/CT hybrid imaging technology, owing to its advantages such as early diagnosis, accurate disease staging, and effective response to the treatment of chronic conditions such as cancer. The combined PET/CT scans provide images that pinpoint the anatomic location of metabolic activity of an individual.
“PET/CT is the gold standard for oncology imaging, and vendors are improving the technological capabilities of PET/CT hybrid imaging system. This will further improve the adoption rates worldwide,” adds Barath.
Limitations involved in individual imaging systems
The limitations associated with the use of individual imaging systems is expected to drive the adoption of hybrid imaging systems. For instance, CT has been the gold standard in oncologic imaging for the past 20 years. However, the technique lacks the ability to show critical differences in physiology.
PET is also one of the established imaging techniques to determine the metabolic activity of tissues but requires the assistance from other systems to produce higher-resolution images. Therefore, vendors have focused on integrating the PET and CT systems and improving the diagnostic accuracy and localization of tumors to provide better-integrated data.
