Digital Mammography
Hot Market in a Cool Economy

| Read Time: Unknown

Women’s health remains at the forefront of discussion in both clinical and political circles, and rightfully so. Early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer improve a patient’s prognosis, and digital mammography images are proven to be more clinically detailed than analog images. Many providers will not even consider a mammography solution that is not digital, and this attitude has produced a hot market; the 2008 sales volume for full-field digital mammography (FFDM) units seemed relatively unaffected by the concurrent economic turmoil. The future looks to remain equally bright, considering that approximately 50 percent of the market has yet to be penetrated, and current digital clients frequently add additional units.

Providers still looking to make the switch to digital are anxious to know their options and to receive answers to their questions. What are vendors delivering to the market today? What are the challenges in converting to a digital workflow? Is purchasing an FFDM modality worth the investment?
