Nuclear medicine is the third most active market segment within molecular imaging systems. Like the SPECT segment, Siemens and GE are the most active vendors, with GE having a 67% frequency and Siemens having a 33% frequency. With an APP of $581,000, GE’s NM/CT 870 model is the most active. Two solutions from Siemens in this market have lost some momentum when compared to the previous year—the Symbia Intevo 6 and the Symbia Intevo Bold. These systems have APPs of $511,000 and $752,000, respectively.
The specialty segment, which focuses on cardiac imaging, has several solutions; however, our client members have gained interest from suppliers such as GE with a 61% frequency, Philips with a 33% frequency, and Spectrum Dynamics with a 6% frequency. GE’s Discovery NM 530c is the most sought-after system and has an APP of $313,000. Based on the data, Philips’ CardioMD IV SPECT system is gaining interest, with an APP of $214,000. Finally, there has been minimal activity for Spectrum Dynamics’ D-Spect-Cardio system, with an APP of $572,000.
