The company has designed cyclotrons and produces pharmaceutical tracers for the rapid, detection of, among others, cancer, and Alzheimer's and cardiovascular diseases.
The company focuses on solutions, including proton therapy, high-energy electron treatment, brachytherapy, and dosimetry; they are all targeted at more accurate treatment and, the protection of healthy tissues. IBA customers include medical device manufacturers, cancer treatment centers, food processors, and the United States Postal Service.
The company operates in two segments: Radioisotopes Production & Distribution and Technology Services & Equipment
RADIOISOTOPES PRODUCTION & DISTRIBUTION
The companys radioisotopes production & distribution segment engages in the production and distribution of radioisotopes for medical imaging and use in cancer treatment implants (brachytherapy).
The companys radiopharmaceutical products are used in medical imaging to aid in the diagnosis of cancer, and the production of implants used in the treatment of certain localized cancers, such as prostate and breast. Businesses within Radioisotope Production & Distribution include: FDG, Radiopharmaceuticals (nuclear medicine); and RadioMed (brachytherapy).
The companys brachytherapy business, RadioMed Corporation, is a fully owned subsidiary of IBA based in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts. RadioMed develops a brachytherapy implant based on a coiled-wire technology. The wire product, Radiocoil, offers advantages over the more traditional rice-size seeds, including improved dose distribution, stability of the implant, ultrasound visibility that enables precise placement, and a less invasive, less traumatic delivery procedure.
Utilizing the coiled-wire technology, RadioMed has also introduced VISICOIL, an advanced linear, fiducial, soft tissue marker product. VISICOIL is designed to enhance the targeting capability of treatment techniques such as Proton Therapy and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), allowing increased dose to cancerous tissue while minimizing dose to surrounding healthy tissue.
The companys radiotherapeutic and diagnostic dosimetry business, Scanditronix - Wellhöfer, supplies dosimetry solution in the radiation therapy market. Its specialized dosimetry products measure the radiation dose to be administered to cancer patients during diagnosis and subsequent treatment with radiotherapy equipment.

Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
