According to latest report titled “Ultrasound Devices Market by Technology (Doppler Ultrasound Imaging, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), 2-D Ultrasound Imaging, 3-D and 4-D Ultrasound Imaging, and Lithotripsy Ultrasound Imaging) Market for Cardiovascular, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Gastroenterology, Radiology,  and Other Application: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2015 – 2021”, the global demand for ultrasound devices market was valued at around USD 6.80 billion in 2015 and is expected to generate revenue of approximately USD 9.50 billion by end of 2021, growing at a CAGR of around 6.0% between 2016 and 2021.

Ultrasound is one of the most broadly used imaging technologies in medicine. It uses high-frequency sound waves to picture the internal organs of the body. Ultrasound has a probe which through which the high-frequency ultrasonic sound waves are transmitted into the body of the patient. An image is generated with the help of echoes of sound waves reflected back by the body organs. An ultrasound system is used to have a look at the heart, human fetus, liver, kidneys, blood vessels, and other organs. It is free of radiation risk, portable, and relatively inexpensive when compared with other imaging modalities, such as magnetic resonance and computed tomography. These characteristics and continued improvements in image quality and resolution have expanded the use of ultrasound in too many areas in medicine beyond traditional diagnostic imaging applications. In particular, its use to assist or guide interventional procedures is growing.
