DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/x54fmc/north_american) has announced the addition of the "North American Nuclear Medicine/Radiopharmaceuticals Market - Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.

The North American nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market is poised to reach USD 2.98 billion by 2020 from USD 1.97 billion in 2015, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period of 2015 to 2020.

Nuclear medicine is a specialized field of medicine that covers all aspects of the use of radioactive substances, through either injection or ingestion, for the diagnosis or treatment of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurological diseases. The nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market is bifurcated into diagnostic and therapeutic segments.

In 2015, the diagnostic segment accounted for the largest share of the North American nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market, by type. Moreover, the SPECT segment is expected to account for the largest share of the North American diagnostic nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market.

This can be attributed to growing cancer patient population, increasing preference for SPECT procedures, advances in SPECT radioisotopes, and cyclotron-based Tc-99m generation. In addition, in 2015, the beta emitters segment is expected to account for the largest share of the North American therapeutic nuclear medicine/radiopharmaceuticals market, owing to heavy funding for research on beta emitters, new therapeutic radioisotopes, and reimbursement policies in favor of using radiopharmaceuticals for cancer therapy.
