Medical imaging has led to improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of numerous medical conditions in children and adults. There are many types of medical imaging procedures, each of which uses different technologies and techniques.

Ultrasound is defined as energy generated by sound waves of 20,000 or more vibrations per second, with a frequency greater than the upper limit of the human hearing range. Knowledge of the harmful effects of radiation exposure continues to promote the use of ultrasound in clinical markets. Portable and handheld ultrasound units are changing and expanding the diagnostic ultrasound market by serving existing clinical markets more efficiently. They also are creating new point-of-care applications for which ultrasound had been either too cumbersome or too expensive to be used before.

This report, Ultrasound: World Market Analysis, analyzes the current and potential world market for ultrasound systems. This report generally forecasts future growth to 2018. Market segments covered include the world, U.S., European, BRIC, and Japanese markets.

Ultrasound has had a foothold in obstetrics for many years, monitoring the fetus during pregnancy. While the market for this segment will continue to increase, use of ultrasound is growing in areas from breast health to cardiology, with mobility the key for newer systems, bringing ultrasound to the bedside.
