New Imaging Technology Innovations by the Global Breast Cancer Imaging Device Industry

The research service shows that the global breast cancer imaging device industry bringing the latest technology innovations. According to the report, these innovative technologies include ionizing breast tomosynthesis technology and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and non-ionizing ultrasound.

Breast cancer is one of the major causes of death due to cancer among women. For early detection and in time intervention, the regular cancer screening is compulsory. The common method of screening for breast cancer is mammography. The old methods of breast cancer screening are however plagued by various challenges.

Innovations in medical technology have increased the sensitivity and accuracy of the diagnosis and provided a closer step at safety aspects which includes less use of ionizing radiation.

Every 1 in 8 women (about 12 percent) in the United States will have breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the top most common cancers in American women. It can occur in both men and women but most common in women. According to estimation 41,760 women and 500 men will die from breast cancer every year. Metastatic breast cancers are the major cause. Currently, the average risk of breast cancer development in American women in their lifetime is 13%. There are currently more than 3.5 million survivors of breast cancer in the U.S according to the American Cancer Society.

These advances in technologies enable the early and accurate diagnosis of breast cancer.
