Drivers: Europe Breast Lesion Localization Methods Market

Technological Advancements In Breast Localization:

Breast localization is playing significant role in detecting or marking the tumors or lumps in the breasts. The method of localization is widely used in the treatment of breast cancer detection. Much technological advancement had taken place in the localization of non-palpable breast lesions as there had been innovative technologies.

  • Elucent Medical has Smartclip and Envisio detection system which is an advanced systems which eliminates the wire and radiation localizations procedures.
  • Cianna Medical has SAVI SCOUT, which is designed to detects the breast cancers using radar for a zero-radiation and wire-free solution designed to aid surgeons in locating target tissue.

Rising Prevalence Of Breast Cancer and Increasing Breast Cancer Surgeries:

Breast cancer is the most common and offensive cancer in women. The changing lifestyle in women such as increased urbanization, rise in obesity and inactive ways of living and delayed childbirths leads to breast cancer. 

  • According to Cancer Research Organization UK, in 2014, 54,833 female cases are registered in UK.

Regulatory Scenarios in Breast Localization:

  • Regulations play an important role in healthcare arena, in case of product approval, product recall and patients’ safety. Regulations in breast cancer surgeries are more inclined towards the safety of women and their health. Radioactive seed localization (RSL), is the new approach towards breast localization over wire localization. In 2006, the first guidance regarding RSL was issued by the NRC. The seed or seeds used in RSL are of non-palpable breast lesions are disposed of in accordance with 10 CFR 35.92 or the equivalent Agreement-State regulations.
  • FDA also recalled some products from the market due its inefficiency in manufacturing and due to safety regarding to patients’ health. For instance, FDA recalled Kopans Breast Lesion Localization Needle of Cook from market due to its potential to expose to body fluids during processing.


Product recall is the procedure to recall the launched product from the market due to frequent causes related to device design, software, and non-conforming material or component issues and issues concerning to the safety of patients. Therefore, recall poses a significant challenge for the medical device industry.

Various products are recalled from the market by FDA due to various reasons such as manufacturing defects or patients’ safety. Following are some products which are recalled by FDA:

  • Medical Device Technologies, Inc., business as Angiotech recalled the product of Angiotech breast localization needles due to packaging integrity.
  • Cook product Kopans Breast Lesion Localization Needle was recalled due to its potential to expose to body fluids during processing.



Breast cancer is the most prevailing disease in the women due to various factors such as urbanization, delayed childbirths and inactive ways of living leads to breast cancer. The several cancer cases are recorded in the developing several Asian countries.

Many post breast surgery has the issues such as problems with the anesthesia, bleeding, blood clots, wound healing problems and others.

The risks and consequences after the breast surgeries are hampering the growth of the market.
