Myriad of Cutting-edge Advancements by Prime Players to Boost Ultrasound Devices Market

Ultrasound devices are used by physicians and help in diagnosing diseases for carrying out further treatments. These devices are also utilized by surgeons for examining numerous abdominal disorders through abdominal imaging. The ultrasound devices market is poised to expand due to the rising occurrence of numerous diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases.  Furthermore, technological developments within ultrasound devices will further boost the market for ultrasound devices, as these advanced devices are able to diagnose complex diseases in less time and with more precision.

Ultrasound devices are utilized by a number of imaging technologists as they are considered safe, practical, easy, and fast to use. TMR, a market intelligence company, elaborates on the future of ultrasound devices technology and the numerous advances in the ultrasound systems introduced by major players, and elaborates upon their unique uses and application areas.

Ultrasound Consortium, Epiq 5, Epiq 7, and Affiniti by Philips: Philips launched an ultrasound consortium at RSNA. This ultrasound consortium comprises an ultrasound system that is app-based and is connected to a mobile device via a downloadable application for turning a consumer-grade smartphone into an ultrasound machine. Though this product was quite credible, it isn’t out for sale yet. In addition, Philips showcased a number of other ultrasound systems such as Epiq 7, Epiq 5, and Affiniti. These ultrasound systems can be utilized while standing or sitting and amongst these, the Epiq 7 and 5 make use of PureWave technology, allowing enhanced penetration in patients with the help of a single transducer. The main improvements touched upon by Philips are ergonomics, mobility, and workflow improvements

ZS3 Ultrasound Platform by Zonare Medical Systems: This technology has the capability of utilizing all information within the returning echo data set and thus covers the imaging field of view via fewer transmit cycles. Unlike the traditional beamformer line-by-line imaging, Zonare utilizes big zone acquisitions. The retrospective imaging has the ability to capture raw data and process it a number of times. Around nineteen different transducers have been introduced by Zonare that can be utilized for ultrasound use. One amongst them comprises a handheld section for the fingers of the operator, thus making the conducting of scans a more comfortable and less cumbersome experience.

Virtual Navigator by Esaote:  The virtual navigator was introduced by Estaote in 2014 at RSNA and has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The virtual navigator is able to fuse real-time ultrasound images via computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), 3D ultrasound, and position emission tomography (PET). Exams such as musculoskeletal, urologic, transcranial radiologic, and peripheral vascular can be performed by using the virtual navigator and it is also used for medical interventions in and around the abdomen and the liver.

Thus, owing to such cutting-edge advancements in ultrasound technology, a large number of users and patients may benefit from shorter examination times, reduced prices, and elimination of additional tests utilizing other modalities.
