Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/25/2014 -- Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. It can affect numerous organs and tissues of the body. When a patient is suspected of having a particular type of cancer, a biopsy procedure is performed to extract a target tissue sample for histological analysis. This intervention typically provides a definitive cancer diagnosis for the patient. Given that these procedures play such an important role in the diagnostic pathway for various cancers, medical device manufacturers have worked to develop biopsy devices that maximize the volume and quality of the tissue samples, as well as decrease their negative impact on the patient's body. As seen with other medical device markets, less invasive biopsy techniques have entered the market and have established a new gold standard in many global regions.
While the global biopsy devices market is expected to see growth over the forecast period, there are several barriers that are dampening the intervention's potential adoption levels. Notably in the US, reimbursement for image guided breast biopsies has undergone some restructuring. The 2014 Medicare Fee Schedule Final Rule imposed drastic reimbursement cuts for these procedures which will have a significant effect on the adoption of more expensive vacuum assisted biopsy (VAB) devices.
