Medical Diagnostic & Therapeutic Ultrasound Devices Market (2012 - 2017) - Global Trends & Competitive Analysis
"Medical Diagnostic & Therapeutic Ultrasound Devices Market (2012 - 2017) [By Technology, Applications & Products, (2D, 3D & 4D, Doppler, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripsy (ESWL), Cart/Trolley, Compact/Portable & Hand-held] Global Trends & Competitive Analysis"
The medical ultrasound devices market consists of devices that involve the projection of cyclic sound waves ranging between 20 KHz – 10 MHz. These waves create varying pressures on biological tissues, based on the level of frequencies used. Ultrasound has the ability to raise the temperature of a substance when directed in focused waves, and thus also finds therapeutic applications.
Medical application of ultrasound began post World War II in the 1940s, with the first diagnostic application being in cardiology and brain tumor identification. Today ultrasound has medical applications in every area of the body and gives accurate results regarding overall structural composition, based on the density and transmission of the sound waves through biological tissue. Along with the conventional black and white ultrasound imaging systems, the
