Market Overview

The Global "Digital Breast Tomosynthesis Market"  is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

  • Digital breast tomosynthesis is comparatively a new technology that improves the radiologists ability to treat breast cancer. It is also known as 3D mammography as it uses a series of two-dimensional images to create a three-dimensional image of the breast using x-rays. Breast tomosynthesis aids in early detection and diagnosis of breast disease. In breast tomosynthesis, the x-ray tube moves along an arc over the compressed breast capturing multiple angles of each breast in different angles. These digital images are combined to form a 3-D image by the algorithm and these digital images are scrutinized to identify the tumor. The benefits offered by these systems include it allows for the detection of small tumors, it increases the detection of small abnormal tissues growth confined to milk ducts called ductal carcinoma in situ, and low radiation equipment as no amount of radiation will remain in the patient's body post-diagnosis. Usage of digital breast tomosynthesis also results in early detection of breast cancer, greater accuracy in identifying the size of the tumor, fewer unnecessary biopsies, and clearer images of abnormalities within the dense breast tissue.

Industry Dynamics

Market Drivers

  • Increase in prevalence of breast cancer across the globe and increase in the adoption of digital breast tomosynthesis devices by various healthcare professionals as a primary source of detection of breast cancer and specifically, in the dense breast are driving the global digital breast tomosynthesis market during the forecast period. Increase in mammography screening across the globe for the detection of breast cancer is additionally contributing to the global breast tomosynthesis market during the forecast period.
  • According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention in 2015, approximately 65.3% of women aged 40 and above had a mammogram within the past two years in united states, and it is expected to rise during the forecast period.


Major factors hindering the global digital breast tomosynthesis market during the forecast period are the high cost associated with the device and availability of alternatives.

Market Segmentation
