Brain PET-MRI Systems Market Growth & Trends

The global brain PET-MRI systems market size is expected to reach USD 417.7 million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 5.1%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing prevalence of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and brain tumor and rising demand for early diagnostic techniques is expected to drive the adoption of brain PET-MRI systems. These systems help in localizing anatomic structures and lesions, differentiating brain tissues, selection of biopsy site, and evaluation of the treatment. Therefore, advantages associated with brain PET-MRI systems in diagnosing different neurological disorders is expected to propel market growth.

Universities and institutes are frequently installing clinical and pre-clinical PET-MRI systems to help researchers and clinicians in their projects. These end-users are installing advanced imaging devices designed by the market players to understand its effectiveness in treating neurological disorders. As per an article by the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), around 50 PET-MRI systems are installed in U.S. for research activities. Additionally, market players such as Cubresa are developing PET inserts, which can be accommodated in 1.5T, 3T, and 7T clinical MRI technology and can be used alone during PET imaging to help clinicians during pre-clinical research.

The demand for helium-free PET-MRI technology is on rise owing to its lower cost and high efficiency. To meet this growing demand, market players are developing helium-free imaging machines. MR Solutions has come up with helium-free MRI machines and launched pre-clinical PET-MRI machines which can be used for research in the field of neurology. Additionally, the player is expanding its base through multiple distributors in Korea, Japan, Australia, and China. Distribution of this helium-free imaging technology will help the research laboratories all over the world.
