Diagnostic Ultrasound Industry Background  

The history of ultrasound can be traced back to its introduction as a diagnostic tool for displaying normal pathology & anatomy during and after the second World War across various centers globally. Use of ultrasound as a means of generating images of the abdomen, pelvis and other small parts, was introduced at radiology meetings and in literature, in the early 1970s. Initial instrumentation involving A-mode and B-mode static imaging produced only still or static images. This technique was used for imaging the abdomen, pelvis as well as for evaluating the fetus during pregnancy. Later, introduction of real-time scanning in 1979, rendered radiologists, ability to perceive live images illustrating anatomy. Ultrasound signified a major advancement in diagnostic imaging by allowing the creation of cross-sectional images without the use of ionizing radiation.  Advent of technology in diagnostic ultrasound systems has increased its adoption over the recent years. Growing demand for these systems to enhance diagnosis will accelerate diagnostic ultrasound industry growth during the forecast period.
