Key Market Insights
Nearly 100 handheld ultrasound imaging devices are presently available / under development
Close to 85% of the aforementioned scanners use linear and curved / convex transducer arrays. Further, to offer variations in image visualization, about 46% of these devices support more than two modes of imaging, including brightness mode (B-mode), color doppler, motion mode (M-mode), pulsed wave, power doppler and tissue harmonic mode.
70% of scanners are based on smartphone applications
Handheld devices using the abovementioned type of software are primarily being used for gynecology / obstetrics (32%), urological (21%) and abdomen (12%) scanning. It is worth mentioning that customized software-based scanners are preferred in emergency medicines and hospital operating rooms, owing to their ease of handling .
Partnership activity has grown at an annualized rate of nearly 43%, between 2016 and 2019
