Radioisotopes are radioactive isotopes having an unstable balance of atomic nucleus. Radioisotopes are produced either by using nuclear research reactor or by using cyclotron. These isotopes emit energy in the form of alpha, beta or gamma when changed to a stable nature. The gamma rays, thus emitted are used in Nuclear medicine, specifically in medical diagnostics. 

In this field, the radiation is used to provide diagnostic information about a human body's functioning. Radiotherapy is also used to treat some life-threatening diseases like cancer. Also, it has been observed that the increasing use of radioisotopes is one of the major reasons for a fall in deaths caused by cancer across the globe. It is because of this feature that the demand for radioisotopes or otherwise called radiopharmaceuticals is increasing significantly. 

A major part of the radiopharmaceuticals market is dominated by diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals, where, SPECT and PET isotopes are most common. The new innovations in nuclear medicine to target coronary heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, breast cancer, and bone metastasis would be the major drivers of the diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals market in the future. 

The other segment of the market is the therapeutic segment, which accounts for the remaining 10%. This segment is mainly dominated by isotopes like I-131, Sm-153, Re-186, Y-90, and Lu-177. It is expected that over the next 5-6 years horizon, this market would witness a steep increase owing to the introduction of many new products for treating lymphoma, colon cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, bone cancer and other persistent cancers. 

The increasing popularity and use of SPECT and PET scans, new and efficient technological equipment, increased awareness about radiopharmaceuticals among physicians and most importantly, the easy availability of radiopharmaceutical from cyclotrons are some of the major factors driving the global radiopharmaceutical market. 

Inspite of the market for radiopharmaceuticals growing rapidly, there are many challenges, like high cost of devices using radioisotopes, short half-life, lack of good manufacturing practices, and stringent regulatory approvals. Additionally, there are also some obstacles with regards to the manufacturing of radioisotopes, which need to be addressed to tap the opportunities. 

The global market for radiopharmaceuticals was estimated to be valued at approximately USD 5.3 billion in 2013. Owing to factors like the increasing adoption rates of PET and SPECT scanners, alpha radioimmunotherapy based targeted cancer treatment, and ready availability of radiopharmaceutical from cyclotrons, coupled with significant developments in research and technology, this market is expected to record a CAGR of close to 15% to reach approximately USD 10.6 billion by 2018.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward. He also shared the story of how Skytap used Docker to get out of the business of managing infrastructure, and into the business of delivering innovation and business value. Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
