The Global Hybrid Imaging Market size is expected to reach $9.1 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 4.44% CAGR during the forecast period. Hybrid imaging is the fusion of more than two imaging technologies that form a new technique. The combinations of the innate benefits of the fused imaging technologies form a novel and much stronger modality. Some of the alternatives imaging techniques are Photon Emission Transmission (PET)/Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound and CT, Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), MRI and CT, and others. Hybrid imaging technology can enhance the precision, attenuation, correction, and localization of one-stop imaging, thereby offering a more accurate diagnosis.
The promising future of PET will be secured with the next generation of imaging resources. Advances in quantitative scans include the assessment of myocardial blood flow (MBF) and myocardial flow reserve (MFR). This identifies global cardiac perfusion flaws that would have been overlooked with qualitative SPECT scans. The advancements have rendered PET a go-to hybrid modality for cardiac molecular imaging. New PET techniques would be able to detect beta-amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Further, cardiovascular scanning would pose more exciting opportunities for PET, considering its potentially enhanced image resolution compared to SPECT.
The industry for hybrid imaging has seen the rapid acceptance of PET/CT hybrid imaging technology due to its advantages like early diagnosis, precise disease staging, and effective response to chronic conditions such as cancer. Also, PET/CT is the benchmark for oncology imaging and the manufacturers are further developing the manufacturing capabilities of hybrid imaging systems. It would further increase the rate of adoption globally. Restricting factors for the growth of hybrid imaging systems are site accreditation, the shortage of skilled professionals, and the rising cost of imaging systems.
