Meeting a Palpable Need in Breast Cancer

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Breast cancer, which has become one of the most significant health risks in the US, according to "US Markets for Breast Disease Detection and Diagnostic Technologies," a report published in March 2006 by the Medtech Insight division of Windhover Information. In 2005, breast cancer resulted in approximately 40,000 deaths, putting it right behind lung cancer as a leading cause of death. Companies with technologies for the early detection of the disease are operating in robust markets with high growth rates, according to the report, because breast cancer affects such a large number of women. One in seven women will develop the breast cancer in her lifetime. There is clearly a palpable need for improved detection and diagnostic technologies.
