Ultrasound, also known as sonography, is not a new imaging modality—having been around since the 1950s—but its application areas have just recently begun to expand tremendously. These new clinical applications, along with technological innovations in portability and resolution and a very favorable risk profile, have made ultrasound equipment a very robust market sector.

This third volume in Kalorama’s ongoing series on medical imaging examines the market for ultrasound equipment worldwide, reviewing the drivers and restraints, the established and emerging application areas, and new technological advances, and providing key market data, including:

  • Revenue forecasts through 2010 by geographic region
  • Market share of leading competitors
  • Installed base by region
  • Imaging procedure forecasts

The report also profiles several companies involved in developing and marketing ultrasound systems and components; they include Aloka, Analogic, Esaote, GE Healthcare, Hitachi Medical Systems, Siemens, SonoSite, and Toshiba, among others.
