Report From RSNA: Interest Expands In Breast Imaging Market

Executive Summary

Several new modalities are poised to change the way breast cancer screenings and diagnostics are performed as physicians and patients continue to search for technologies that can do more than standard X-rays. Ultrasound, computed tomography, and 3-D imaging are being touted as ways to improve the detection of tumors – especially in women with dense breast tissue – as well as to reduce exposure to radiation. Currently, the market is dominated by large, established manufacturers, but some new players are bringing in innovative options that are poised to push the field forward.
