Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women (after lung cancer). Breast cancer strikes women of all ages, races, ethnicities, socioeconomic strata and geographical locales. Initial diagnosis and staging are essential in determining the choice of therapy, as well as a patient’s prognosis and chances of survival. Therefore, breast imaging procedures has a significant role in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
Mammography is the touchstone technology and is widely accepted for breast cancer screening followed by breast MRI. Digital mammography comprises more than 45 percent of the entire breast imaging market. However, owing to its poor sensitivity, high false positives, alternative technologies such as MRI, 3D breast tomosynthesis, ultrasound and nuclear imaging are attaining significance for the diagnosis of breast cancer. However, physicians and healthcare providers are still reluctant to use breast MRI, primarily due to its high investment costs. However,new inroads are being designed providing a hope that, an inexpensive means of performing breast MRI may be imminent. These provide a glimpse into the enormous potential yet offered by this elegant technology.
The key players profiled in the report are Hologic Inc., Aurora Imaging Technology, Imaging Diagnostic Systems Inc., Naviscan PET Systems Inc., GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Koning Corporation, Philips Research, U-Systems Inc., Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc., Dune Medical Technologies, Dilon Diagnostics, Planmeca GmbH, Gamma Medica Inc and AGFA Healthcare.
