Breast cancer, a form of cancer originating from the breast tissue, is the more prevalent type of cancer and is the leading cause of high mortality rates among women across the globe. Though the incidence of Breast cancer is seen in almost all geographical regions of the world, its preponderance to a greater extent in the developed economies than in the developing economies. Early diagnosis of breast cancer is believed to be important towards treatment, in order to avoid time delays, turning the cancers to malignant or metastatic. The market of breast imaging has witnessed dramatic technological evolutions since last few years. Every new technique came up with better solution to compensate the procedural gap of the last technique. At present, this market represents widely diverse technologies with newer and more comprehensive breast imaging devices.

Currently, Mammography is the gold standard technology used for the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. However, owing to its low sensitivity and risk of exposure to radiation, new alternative modalities are gaining importance for accurate detection of breast cancers. Nuclear and Magnetic Resonance imaging have been used to detect breast cancers in high risk patients. Recently, Full Field Digital Mammography, 3D breast Tomosynthesis, Optical imaging and Molecular Breast imaging techniques are also being widely used for breast cancer screening and diagnosis. Another upcoming modality is the Whole Breast Ultrasound (WBU) which is considered as much safer, user friendly for physicians and cost effective compared to other modalities. With the growing R&D efforts in technology innovations and modality up-gradations, along with regulatory approvals, the newer breast imaging modalities offers a promising future for breast cancer diagnosis in the coming five years.

The global breast imaging market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 15.37% from 2012 reaching approximately $5 billion by 2017.
