US leads the Global Digital Mammography Market According to Infiniti Research

13 Mar 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Mammography is the process of using low-radiation X-rays to diagnose illness in the human breast. The main purpose of mammography is the early detection of breast cancer through microcalcifications (tiny specks of calcium deposits that can be scattered throughout the mammary gland). Mammography is believed to reduce breast cancer mortality. Being aware about changes in the breast and following it up with mammography diagnosis are considered essential parts of regular breast care. Mammography has been recommended as a standard screening process for breast cancer worldwide. There are three types of mammography systems: analog, computed tomography (CR), and full-field digital mammography (FFDM).

According to the report “Digital Mammography Market in the US 2010–2014” by Infiniti Research, growth in the market is primarily driven by the implementation of breast screening programs, growing awareness amongst the female population, and increasing women's education of breast cancer in the Americas. With higher breast cancer incidence, the US leads the Global Digital Mammography market in terms of proportion of breast cancer screening programs. Aging population, family history, and obesity are identified as key factors responsible for surging breast cancer rates in the US. The Digital Mammography market in the US is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period.
