  • 1. Mammography World Markets<br />Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women, affecting one in eight during their lives. Mammography is the most valuable method for detecting potentially cancerous anomalies in the breast. As such, the mammography equipment segment is poised for a major new phase of growth fueled by the availability of new technologies. Mammograms are images of the breast tissue produced from low radiation X-rays. The three types of mammography systems are: 1) analog systems, 2) computed tomography (CR) systems and 3) full-field digital mammography (FFDM). The analog systems are the conventional types, and they use X-ray films for capturing the breast images. The CR systems are also film-based, but are retrofitted with digital detectors. In FFDM, the X-ray film is replaced by solid-state detectors that convert X-rays into electrical signals. Digital tomosynthesis is a new technology with improved diagnostic capabilities over standard digital mammography. Moreover, scintimammography (nuclear medicine breast imaging) is an additional breast exam available. This TriMark Publications report thoroughly reviews: 1) existing and emerging mammography technologies, 2) known risk factors for breast cancer, 3) breast cancer treatments and drugs, 4) types of mastectomy procedures, 5) breast reconstruction surgery, and 6) funding for breast cancer research. The study examines almost all of the companies known to be marketing, manufacturing or developing mammography equipment and breast cancer therapies in the world. Each company is discussed in extensive depth with a section on its history, product lines, business and marketing analysis, and a subjective commentary of the company's market position. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and market share data are also included.Table of Contents :1.
