The women's health arena, both therapeutics and diagnostics, has grown considerably as a specialty medical field. Once limited to obstetrics and gynecology, it now includes other fields, such as urology, maternal-fetal medicine, as well as autoimmune disease and cystic fibrosis. At many clinics and practices focused on the health of women, a range of specialties are offered, which often results in a need for specific types of women's health-related testing. Generally, and from a perspective on women's health, diagnostics are playing an ever increasing role.

Worldwide, women are living longer than men. There is a need to improve the understanding of the differences, in terms of health, between the sexes and to translate that knowledge into improved medical diagnostics, practice and therapies.

Kalorama Information's Women's Health Diagnostic Markets analyzes the current and potential world markets for key diagnostic tests targeted at women's health. This report generally forecasts future market growth for these tests to 2018. Market segments covered include the US, Europe, China, Brazil, Japan and rest of world markets.

The report presents market developments in women's health diagnostics, including in-depth analysis of the following testing fields:

Pregnancy and Ovulation Testing
Bone Density Testing
Prenatal Screening
Ultrasound
Mammography
Pap Smears
Colposcopy
HPV Testing
Ovarian Cancer Testing
Urinary Tract Infections
Neonatal Jaundice
Autoimmune Disease
Cystic Fibrosis

Over the next few decades, comprehensive genomics-based health care should be the norm in the US and much of Europe. In the next decade, genetic tests will routinely predict individual susceptibility to disease. Diagnoses of many conditions will be much more thorough and specific than now. The report gives insight into understanding the molecular basis of disease.

Women's Health Diagnostic Markets also reviews the nature and direction of research and trends, and gives insight into some issues facing the industry. The report profiles several key companies, including large companies that have made names for themselves in the field, as well as smaller firms with market niches. These companies are involved in developing and marketing over the counter (OTC), point of care (POC) in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests and screening systems.

Some of the companies profiled include:

GE Healthcare
GenMark Diagnostics
Hologic
Immco Diagnostics
Luminex
Nova Biomedical
Philips Healthcare
Siemens Healthcare
Somagen Diagnostics
