Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The use of DBT to diagnose breast cancer in patients with dense breasts is an emerging trend in the Global DBT market. Although mammography still remains the best imaging technique for detecting breast cancer, it can fail to detect 37-70 percent of breast cancer cases in women with dense breasts. As a result, there can be a delay in diagnosis for women with dense breast tissues. DBT enables the removal of overlapping tissue artifacts, especially in dense breasts, and offers better screening sensitivity. Thus, increased use of DBT for patients with dense breasts will fuel the demand for DBT equipment in the Diagnostic industry.
According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increase in the incidence of breast cancer among women, which has led to an increase in demand for imaging equipment such as breast tomosynthesis devices.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the market is the lack of reimbursement policies for breast imaging through DBT for breast cancer diagnosis.
