Ultrasound, a type of imaging, leverages high-frequency sound waves to examine organs and structures inside the body such as the heart, kidneys, blood vessels, and liver, among others. Ultrasound also finds application in viewing the fetus during pregnancy, diagnosis of pain, swelling and infection in the body’s internal organs, and heart conditions, and also in carrying out biopsies. Ultrasound steals a march over radiation by being noninvasive and devoid of harmful ionizing radiation.

The demand for ultrasound has been seeing a steady upswing on account of the rising occurrence of chronic and lifestyle-related disorders, an increasing geriatric pool highly susceptible to different types of diseases, and soaring popularity of minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic techniques. Continued technological development improving the procedure further is also boding well for the ultrasound market globally.

Asia Pacific, powered by populous emerging economies, namely India and China, has been at the forefront of adopting ultrasound because of the rising instances of chronic and infectious diseases, awareness about various minimally invasive procedures, and increasing healthcare expenditure.
