Global Portable Ultrasound Equipment Market 2017-2021

Global Portable Ultrasound Equipment Market 2017-2021

About Portable Ultrasound

Portable ultrasound devices are imaging devices that utilize echo-enhanced ultrasound waves to aid in medical diagnosis. They are convenient to carry since they are lighter and smaller than conventional ultrasound machines. Portable ultrasound devices can be used at POC and operated on battery power. Portable ultrasound devices include higher computational power and advanced semiconductor technology, enabling complicated but sophisticated algorithms to enhance the display and reconstruction of images. Further, data provided by portable ultrasound devices can be used for harmonic tissue imaging; wherein images are reconstructed from reflected/scanned body tissues.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global portable ultrasound market to grow at a CAGR of 9.10% during the period 2017-2021.
