MediPoint: Breast Cancer Imaging Current and Future Players
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in both the developed and developing world, but is a rare disease in men. The global incidence of breast cancer is increasing due to an increased lifespan and increasing adoption of western lifestyle risk factors. Early diagnosis of breast cancer is the foundation for increasing survival rates and diagnostic imaging is the most widely used technique to achieve early detection, making diagnostic imaging a cornerstone of breast cancer control.
Diagnostic imaging is used for the early detection of breast cancer in asymptomatic patients in population-based screening programs in most developed countries, or for opportunistic screening in developing nations. Regardless of these differences, imaging has proved to be an indispensable tool in fighting breast cancer and has been proven to reduce mortality.
