Innovation In The Age Of Breast-Conserving Surgery

Executive Summary

Medical device and diagnostic companies are developing innovative new products for women with breast cancer designed to facilitate earlier diagnosis, improve diagnostic accuracy, increase surgical precision, and enable the least invasive, most breast-conserving approach to breast cancer surgery. With the number of breast cancer cases in the US projected to increase dramatically by 2030, the success of these technologies depends on their ability to improve cosmetic results and survival rates while lowering overall health care costs.

Ablation Therapies Emerging As Gentler Approach To Breast Cancer

Use of ablation technology is emerging as a potentially gentler treatment option for breast cancer, and cryo and thermal ablation in particular are on the verge of regulatory approval that could lead to wider use. A growing number of physicians are already using cryotherapy for breast cancer, but without FDA clearance, reimbursement can be a difficult issue.

Novel Molecular Imaging Technology Could Improve Tumor Margin Assessment During Breast Cancer Surgery

A novel molecular imaging technology for intraoperative assessment of tumor margins during breast cancer surgery is positioned to not only improve patient outcomes, but to also reduce costs by eliminating the need for repeat surgeries. Lightpoint Medical has already received the CE mark for its product, which could be developed for use in other cancers, and a US launch could come as early as the first quarter of 2016.

The Evolving World Of Breast Cancer Management

The device industry is playing a pivotal role in the evolution toward a more personalized approach to breast cancer management, with ongoing advances in minimally invasive treatment systems, tumor characterization and breast imaging technologies adding to the momentum. In the years ahead, as the breast cancer toolbox expands, the watchword will be “choice,” with physicians and patients offered more treatment options, targeted to their specific needs and desires, than ever before.
