Among the females, breast cancer was the most common cancer and contributed to 29.7% of the total cancers in females. Colorectal cancer was the most common cancer for males in Saudi Arabia which contributed to 19.6% of all cancers in males. Furthermore, during the same year, 10,518 deaths due to cancer were recorded in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, the demand for diagnostic imaging to reduce cancer cases and provide better treatment is increasing.

Diagnostic imaging plays a vital role in interventional oncology (with rising opportunities to diagnose and treat in a targeted and minimally or non-invasive manner) as well as in chemo and radiation therapy. Equipment, such as CT, is the highly beneficial and preferred method of imaging for many conditions, including trauma patients. Comparatively, PET is mostly preferred as compared to SPECT, and there are hybrid medical devices also available such as PET/CT or PET/MRI.
