We've recently published "The Neurodiagnostics Report 2010: Brain Imaging, Biomarkers and NeuroInformatics," a report published by NeuroInsights. It is a fully updated second annual industry insider report detailing markets and emerging diagnostics in neurology and psychiatry. In addition to the massive unmet markets, long-term growth in neurodiagnostics is being driven by technology advances and equipment upgrades in neuroimaging; new biomarkers and imaging protocols for early diagnosis and disease monitoring; and increased use of imaging and informatics in drug and device development.
NeuroInsights has identified three primary markets in neurodiagnostics which are discussed in detail in this report: Neuroimaging: Medical equipment and reagents for research, diagnostics and patient monitoring, including MRI, CT, PET, SPECT, EEG and MEG. In vitro diagnostics: Genetic testing, biomarker assays and chemical profiling of human samples, including urine, blood, cerebral spinal fluid and tissue. Neuroinformatics: Multidimensional databases and software systems that store and analyze data from the genetic to the behavioral level.
