Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in women. It occurs when the cells present in the breast lose their property of controlled growth and start invading surrounding cells and tissues and spread throughout the body. Breast imaging is one of the popular diagnostic modalities used to screen and diagnose breast cancer. Rising prevalence and incidence of breast cancer, growing awareness for early detection of breast diseases, technological innovations and launch of advanced breast imaging equipment & software, increasing investment and funding in R&D for breast cancer treatment, and rising women aging population are the key factors driving growth in the global breast imaging market.
