About the US Prostate Cancer Imaging Market
Prostate cancer has emerged as a major cancer killer in the United States, with approximately 160,000 new cases annually and three million men living with prostate cancer.4 There remains a significant unmet need to better diagnose and stage men with prostate cancer, from initial diagnosis all the way to therapeutic monitoring in patients with late-stage metastatic disease. The prostate imaging market in the US is estimated to be a $500m market opportunity, likely to be dominated by the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and imaging agents targeting prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) in particular.5
