Ultrasound is a high-frequency cyclic sound pressure procedure to view the internal organs and generate images of the human body. This technique is non-invasive as it does not penetrate the skin or body openings and has tremendous diagnostic and therapeutic applications. Ultrasound imaging is mainly used in the areas of cardiology, gynecology, and radiology. For the future, other segments, such as emergency care, surgery and intensive care are expected to expand rapidly.
The global ultrasound devices market is mainly concentrated in Europe, North America, and Japan with Asia expected to show strongest growth in the low-end and compact segments. This market is expected to grow due to introduction of new technologies, user friendliness, cost-reduction and more advanced use of ultrasound in medical diagnostics. Growth will be triggered with suppliers offering flexible portfolio of quality ultrasound systems and services along with software and education.
