Medical Ultrasound Equipment Market on the Rise


Persistent Market Research has posted their forecast for the medical ultrasound equipment market indicating a notable rise in the availability and use of medical ultrasound.  The report itself is available for purchase, at the links below. However, their article prefacing this report leaves us with some curious questions about it’s content…

At first glance, the article appears to make note of general rising trends in ultrasound equipment sales - which would jibe with our observation of the general increase in market trends. The following quote is offered as an appetizer for the final report …

“… North America followed by Europe is dominating the global medical ultrasound equipment market due to increasing numbers of diagnostic imaging centres (sic) and increasing adoption of technologically advanced imaging systems. Asia is expected to be the fastest growing market due to modernization in healthcare infrastructure and rising prevalence of diseases. Japan is dominating the Asian medical ultrasound equipment market due to an availability of technologically advanced manufacturers such as Toshiba and Hitachi..”

This all seems reasonably straight forward until I came across the following quote …

“…However, the risk of high radiation and the high cost of medical imaging are some major factors restraining the growth of the global medical ultrasound equipment market…”

Wait. What? High radiation in ultrasound?  The inclusion of this (clearly incorrect) statement makes us think that at least the introductory blog article was assembled without much attention to detail. Perhaps the report itself is more thoughtful in it’s content.
