Preclinical imaging is a technique used to monitor animals for research purposes such as in new drug development. Preclinical imaging includes many different imaging modalities, in which only few are suitable for imaging small animals, and others can be used in large animals. Preclinical imaging is used by researchers in visualizing changes in animal’s molecular, tissue and organ system. Preclinical brain imaging is a method to scan and visualize the neurological activity during preclinical study. Preclinical brain imaging is categorized into structural imaging and functional imaging. Structural brain imaging scans the structure of large intracranial organs and functional imaging is majorly used in diagnosis of metabolic disorders. Preclinical brain imaging modalities with non-invasive imaging techniques such as position emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) are used for this purposes. The preclinical brain imaging is further used to observe the treatment response for early signals. Preclinical brain imaging is done using advanced high frequency ultrasound by using techniques such as Computed tomography (CT) and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The most used preclinical brain imaging technique is PET+CT (x-ray computed tomography). The development of integrated systems that includes multiple functionalities, e.g., molecular and structural imaging are in demand and is expected to boost the growth of the preclinical brain imaging market. Due to technological advancements the companies are constantly upgrading their product offerings, for instance, Medisco Ltd. has launched integrated preclinical whole body PET/ MRI system, which has multi-cell anesthesia imaging bed and high throughput screening, and easy installation makes it popular among the users.
Preclinical Brain Imaging Market: Drivers and Restraints
According to a report of the National Brain tumor Society it is estimated that nearly 700,000 Americans are living with a brain tumor and cases of brain tumor will increase gradually in the recent years.
