Point of Care Ultrasound Industry Background

Introduction of ultrasound as an investigative tool for demonstrating normal anatomy & pathology marks the beginning of its adoption during and after the Second World War across different centers globally. In the early 1970, use of ultrasound for generating images of the pelvis, abdomen and other minor parts, was introduced at the radiology meetings as well as in literature. Further in 1979, development of real-time scanning, enabled radiologists to observe live images illustrating anatomy. Later, advent of technology in ultrasound led to development of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) in 1990s, for use in obstetrics. POCUS was then used by physicians in emergency departments since late 1990s. Use of POCUS for multiple specialties in various healthcare settings further increased after 2010. The application of point of care ultrasound in emergency medicine is expanding rapidly over the recent years. Adoption of point of care ultrasound systems by emergency physicians ensures improved diagnostic accuracy and reduced length of stay & consultation time in the emergency department. Increasing demand for these systems for enhanced diagnosis and treatment will thus accelerate point of care ultrasound industry growth during the forecast period.
