Globally, ultrasound technology has evolved as a cost-effective tool, providing diagnostic imaging and therapeutic treatment to patients suffering from various ailments.Technological advancements improve the efficiency of ultrasound in terms of image quality and portability.

The development of compact, hand-held devices has expanded the use of ultrasound devices into point-of-care settings. Increased healthcare expenditure from both government and private insurers for the expansion of medical imaging services are expected to account for stable 3D and 4D ultrasound device market growth during the forecast period. An increase in the world’s elder population, increased import volumes of medical
equipment into emerging economies and increased spending on medical technology are expected to drive the 3D and 4D ultrasound device market during the forecast period. There are many notable innovations in 3D and 4D ultrasound devices. These devices are preferred by diagnostic centers, large hospitals and private hospitals.

The global market for 3D and 4D ultrasound devices was valued at nearly REDACTED in 2019 and by the end of the forecast period (2025), it is predicted that the global market will surpass REDACTED. The 3D and 4D ultrasound device market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of about REDACTED during the forecast period.

A powerful technological breakthrough, real-time 3D technology underwent several upgrades, replacing a good portion of the 2D ultrasound equipment, globally.Traditional 2D ultrasound has been used for diagnostic applications for several years.

The 3D ultrasound market segment is gradually expanding its market share, mainly due to the increasing preference for real-time imaging.This is helpful in performing image-guided surgeries.

In a 3D ultrasound device, sound waves used in the 2D system are transmitted to the target, but are reflected by the software at different angles, creating a 3D image. Improved visualization and clarity with surface detail are available through 3D ultrasound.

In terms of application, 3D ultrasound made significant progress in the diagnostic evaluation, staging and detection of prostate cancer. Investigators found that 3D ultrasound produces better images of prostate physiology, tumor extension and evaluation of surrounding structures. 2D ultrasound usually requires manipulation of a probe to obtain an appropriate scanning angle, causing discomfort to the patient. 3D ultrasound provides superior information via needle biopsies for prostate cancer.

In addition, 3D ultrasound is being used to guide surgery and at radiology centers to provide effective radiation therapy for cancer patients.

The effective use of 3D ultrasound robotic systems for breast and prostate needle biopsies are currently being investigated through several feasibility trials. In the U.S. alone, more than one million transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsies are performed, annually. TRUS is one of the most frequently performed procedures for prostate cancer diagnosis in the U.S. However, TRUS has several shortcomings; suboptimal sampling may require resampling. A robot-guided device provides image stability and accurate sampling for clinical evaluation.
