On the basis of type, the global breast imaging market is segmented into two major categories, namely, ionizing technologies and non-ionizing technologies. Ionizing technologies are further segmented into eight subsegments, namely, analog mammography, full-field digital mammography (FFDM), 3D breast tomosynthesis, positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), molecular breast-specific gamma imaging (MBI/BSGI), cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), positron emission mammography (PEM), and electric impedance tomography.


Global Breast Imaging Market, by Type

  • Ionizing Breast Imaging Technologies
  • Analog Mammography
  • Full-field Digital Mammography (FFDM)
  • 3D Breast Tomosynthesis
  • Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT)
  • Molecular Breast Imaging/Breast-specific Gamma Imaging (MBI/BSGI)
  • Cone-beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
  • Positron Emission Mammography (PEM)
  • Electric Impedance Tomography

The non-ionizing breast imaging market technologies segment is classified into five subsegments, namely, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, automated whole breast ultrasound (AWBU), breast thermography, and optical imaging. The automated whole-breast ultrasound (AWBU) segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the next five years, owing to benefits such as high reproducibility, high resolution power with 3D capability, lower false positives, and faster imaging.
