U.S. MARKETS FOR BREAST DISEASE DETECTION AND DIAGNOSTIC TECHNOLOGIES

423 Pages | 60 Exhibits | 2006 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2009

OVERVIEW:
With more than 200,000 diagnoses and 40,000 deaths each year, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy in the U.S. and is the second-leading cause of cancer mortality in women. More than 2 million women in the U.S. have been treated for breast cancer; as with other cancers, early detection and treatment of breast cancer dramatically improves survival rates.

In 2004, sales of breast-specific screening and diagnostic products (e.g., biological tumor markers, breast biopsy products, computer-aided detection systems, conventional and digital mammography systems, emerging breast cancer detection products, pharmacogenetic and prognostic testing products, and susceptibility testing products) totaled approximately $690 million. In addition, sales of non-breast-specific diagnostic technologies (e.g., nuclear imaging products, magnetic resonance imaging products, and ultrasound products) totaled approximately $4 billion. Over the forecast period covered by this report, sales of these products are expected to increase significantly.

This 423-page report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, technologies, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in the U.S. breast disease detection and diagnostic technologies market. Topics discussed in this report include breast cancer statistics and trends, computer-aided detection, conventional and digital mammography, emerging technologies for breast cancer diagnosis, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear imaging, an overview of benign and malignant breast diseases, surgical and minimally invasive breast biopsy, tumor markers, and ultrasound.
