Research and Markets: MediPoint: Biopsy Devices - South America Analysis and Market Forecasts

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/whv78b/medipoint_biopsy) has announced the addition of the "MediPoint: Biopsy Devices - South America Analysis and Market Forecasts" report to their offering.

Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. It can affect numerous organs and tissues of the body. When a patient is suspected of having a particular type of cancer, a biopsy procedure is performed to extract a target tissue sample for histological analysis. This intervention typically provides a definitive cancer diagnosis for the patient.

Given that these procedures play such an important role in the diagnostic pathway for various cancers, medical device manufacturers have worked to develop biopsy devices that maximize the volume and quality of the tissue samples, as well as decrease their negative impact on the patient's body. As seen with other medical device markets, less invasive biopsy techniques have entered the market and have established a new gold standard in many global regions.

A similar pattern in biopsy procedure volumes for the cancer indications covered in this report can be observed in the major South American market of Brazil as in the major European markets previously discussed. Both prostate and breast biopsy procedures account for the largest portion of the overall market.
