This insight presents an analysis of the mammography CAD (computer aided detection) market in Western Europe. It provides an in-depth analysis of the current trends, market size, revenue forecast, market penetration and market attractiveness, both in the two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) CAD markets. X-ray Mammography is the gold standard for breast cancer detection. With rising incidence of breast cancer, organized population based screening programs are carried out in Western countries at 1-3 year screening intervals, depending on the policies of individual countries. Starting early 1990s, countries in the region have witnessed a significant decrease in mortality. Mammography was not considered patient friendly due to the discomforts caused, possible false positives, failure to detect tumors and the potential radiation exposure. However, with innovations in technology, most western countries have switched to digital screening. Yet, the use of CAD is low in Western European countries and the guidelines prescribe double reading by radiologists for mammography interpretation. CAD algorithms aid in the diagnosis and visualization of mammography data. They process 2D and 3D tomosynthesis mammography images and identify regions of interest in breasts. With the advent of private hospitals and favorable health insurance reimbursements, there is more demand for patient safety and quality of technologies, reduced hospitalization and a reduction in the overall healthcare costs. Business models focusing on managed services, pay per use, sharing services, integrated workflow and automation are changing the procurement landscape of mammography CAD solutions. These factors determine the growth of the mammography CAD market.
