Breast Lesion Localization Methods Market

The increasing number of breast cancer surgeries and the increasing awareness for disease screening are the main factors driving the growth of the regional approach to breast cancer. Rising health care awareness has led to the growth of cancer screening for related symptoms to provide early treatment and increase the chance of survival.

Breast lesions are small, irregular patches of thickened tissue that can occur on the skin and in the breast. These lesions can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Breast lesion localization methods market is important because it involves identifying the location of the lesion so that the doctor can decide on a course of treatment. There are many methods available to identify breast lesions, and they are all used in conjunction with each other to ensure accuracy.

A mammogram is a diagnostic procedure that uses low-energy x-rays to examine tissues and organs inside the body for abnormalities. It is one of the most common ways to identify breast cancer cells in women between 40 and 50 years old because this group has an increased risk for developing breast cancer. Mammograms use either digital imaging or film to create an image of a woman’s breast. The two images are then combined into a 3D image for clearer viewing when examining for any abnormalities.

A mammogram is performed by an x-rays technician or a radiographer who moves an X-ray machine around the body, usually holding it over the chest and taking pictures from different angles.

Mammography is safe for women, but it does carry some health risks such as exposure to ultra violet light which can cause cataracts in later life, increased risk of skin cancer, and increased risk of breast cancer from radiation exposure.

Based on the method, the breast lesion area method market is segmented into wire guided localization, magnetic tracers, radioisotope localization and electromagnetic reflectors. The wire guided segment is expected to dominate during the forecast period owing to its constant adoption among end users. The radio-isotope approach is popular because it shortens the time needed for localization and operation. The market for radioisotope localisation will increase quickly as a result of this trend in radioisotope use.
