The breast imaging refers to the digital representation of breast’s form. There are various types of breast imaging modalities. They include, ductography, thermography, ultrasound, tomosynthesis and MRI, etc. The mammograms refer to x-ray examination of the breast. The technique is most common for cancer detection among women, even when they have no signs or symptoms of the disease. Types of mammograms include, screening mammogram and diagnostic mammogram. The mammogram technology has advanced and could be segmented into digital mammogram and 3-D mammography or breast tomosynthesis.
The 3-D breast tomosynthesis is a special type of mammogram that produces a 3-dimensional image of the breast by using several low dose x-rays obtained at different angles, with multiple thin-section images of the breast. 3-D breast tomosynthesis technology has several advantages and disadvantages.
The global 3-D breast tomosynthesis market has been projected to increase in the next five years i.e. 2016-2021 tremendously. The breast tomosynthesis market is expected to increase due to rise in global per-capita healthcare expenditure, increase in cigarettes consumption, increase in alcohol consumption, rise in global cases of cancer, etc. Yet the market faces some challenges, such as funding issues in developing countries, threat to innovation and limited number of manufacturers.
