Medical imaging reagents are chemicals to allow clinicians to improve the imaging of specific organs, tissues, diseases and physiological functions. Medical imaging reagents are specially designed chemical compounds used to enhance images produced through imaging systems. These reagents allow clinicians and healthcare providers to determine whether a tumor is malignant or benign and enables to locate any metastatic cancerous sites in the body. Medical imaging reagents are used for diagnosing disease, monitoring disease progression, tracking therapeutic response, and enhancing our knowledge of physiology and pathophysiology. Medical imaging incorporates radiology which uses the imaging technologies of X-ray radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, medical ultrasonography or ultrasound, endoscopy, elastography, tactile imaging, thermography, medical photography and nuclear medicine functional imaging techniques as positron emission tomography (PET) and Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Medical imaging reagents play a significant role in diagnostic, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology medical and life science industries.
