AuntMinnie's IMV MarketStat #33: Mobile versus fixed PET or PET/CT sites and scanners

November 22, 2004 --

As of IMV's 2003 PET census, 510 sites indicate they have a fixed PET or PET/CT scanner, and 890 sites report they utilize a mobile service to provide PET or PET/CT imaging capability, resulting in a total of 1,400 sites offering PET imaging services. The 890 sites using mobile PET report using the mobile service for an average of 1.2 days per week per site. Assuming that the mobile vans are scheduled with no downtime between sites, an estimated 210 mobile vans serve these 890 sites.

Based on responses to IMV’s 2003 PET Census Study.

The resulting estimate for total fixed PET and PET/CT scanner installed base identified in this 2003 PET census, including fixed and mobile units, is 755 scanners.
