Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in both the developed and developing world, but is a rare disease in men. The global incidence of breast cancer is increasing due to an increased lifespan and increasing adoption of western lifestyle risk factors. Early diagnosis of breast cancer is the foundation for increasing survival rates and diagnostic imaging is the most widely used technique to achieve early detection, making diagnostic imaging a cornerstone of breast cancer control.

Diagnostic imaging is used for the early detection of breast cancer in asymptomatic patients in population-based screening programs in most developed countries, or for opportunistic screening in developing nations. Regardless of these differences, imaging has proved to be an indispensable tool in fighting breast cancer and has been proven to reduce mortality. This report provides an analysis of the mammography market (in relation to dedicated breast cancer screening and diagnosis), in the US, the 5EU (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and UK), Brazil, and the APAC regions, including Japan, China, and India, and identifies the unmet needs in the market. This report also discusses physician attitudes towards current breast cancer screening and diagnostic techniques, and the future of breast cancer imaging modalities in the face of rapid technological advancements.
