Breast imaging market to hit $5 billion by 2017

The global breast imaging market is expected reach about $5 billion by 2017, according to a newly published report from Research and Markets.

According to the report, "Breast Imaging Technology Market Analysis With Global Forecasts to 2017," a leading driver of the market includes the rising numbers of breast cancer cases along with the number of false positives. Inadequate reimbursement policies serve to suppress the market, although that should improve as technology becomes more widespread across the globe.

Emerging economics in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa should be future drivers of the market, according to the report's authors. Announcement
