  • This report studies the medical diagnostic and
    therapeutic ultrasound devices market over the
    forecast period 2012 2017.
  • Ultrasound imaging has been used as a diagnostic
    tool since the 1940s in a variety of
    applications, especially in the fields of
    cardiology, radiology, and obstetrics
    gynecology, and to a lesser extent in urology and
    musculoskeletal. These applications constitute
    the conventional market for diagnostic ultrasound
    devices. The technology has also found great use
    in general imaging and point-of-care diagnostics,
    such as emergency medicine and anesthesia.
  • Ultrasound is one of the most affordable
    techniques of imaging and diagnosing various
    anatomical abnormalities and structural
    deformities. Since it is a non-invasive
    technique, it has been highly accepted by
    physicians, technicians and considered as a
    treatment of choice by patients. It is one of the
    most commonly used devices for monitoring
    pregnant women, along with the fetus.

  • The therapeutic applications of ultrasound, such
    as ablation, have been well accepted by the
    medical community due to its efficacy and speed.
    High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is
    applied in ablation procedures that involve the
    removal of unwanted biological tissue. The HIFU
    procedure, which lasts up to 15-20 minutes, has
    been successfully applied for the removal of
    uterine fibroids in women and treatment of
    prostate cancer. 
  • Another type of therapeutic ultrasound technique
    is used in lithotripsy. Lithotripsy has been used
    to treat bladder and kidney stones for the past
    few decades. Initially pneumatic drills were used
    to break the stones these lithotripters were
    powered electrically and used invasively, and
    hence called intracorporeal lithotripters. The
    advanced extracorporeal lithotripters, however,
    use high intensity focused ultrasonic waves to
    break gall, bladder or kidney stones by rupturing
    them into small pieces through shockwaves the
    pieces then flow out through the urethra or
    through biliary ducts.

  • The total medical ultrasound devices market is
    estimated to be valued at 5.6 billion in 2011
    and predicted to reach 8.1 billion by 2017 at a
    CAGR of 6.2. The most significant growth for the
    specialties segment was seen in emergency
    medicine, anesthesiology and musculoskeletal
    applications. The demand for point-of-care
    diagnostics has driven the market for the last 5
    years and is expected to be a prime driver for
    the forecast period.
