NEW YORK, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Ultrasound Market Outlook to 2016

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0512006/The-Ultrasound-Market-Outlook-to-2016.html?utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Medical_Imaging

The global ultrasound market has reached saturation. However, innovations in organ-specific imaging and the introduction of elastography features for cancer detection are creating niche markets for ultrasound.

This report examines the increasing adoption of ultrasound in both primary and secondary diagnosis. Manufacturers of ultrasound are introducing advanced equipment and probes for organ-specific imaging. Developments in elastography ultrasound over the past three years have provided new methods of cancer detection. Therapeutic uses of ultrasound are also covered.

Scope of this research

• Identify the market potential of the ultrasound market and the various ultrasound segments.

• Gain a quick and comprehensive understanding of the new innovations in ultrasound.

• Develop a framework for decision making by identifying the new advances that will shape the future of the ultrasound market.

• Benchmark performance against the leading ultrasound companies in terms of revenue growth and product launch capabilities.

• Learn from the business strategies of prominent ultrasound companies to target future growth markets effectively.

Research and analysis highlights

Regulatory entities have been imposing stringent regulations on imaging equipment manufacturers to lower the patient's exposure to unwanted radiation, and this is favouring the use of ultrasound. There has also been an increase in the use of ultrasound owing to demographic effects and enhanced healthcare initiatives.

Ultrasound is not limited only to basic screening, but rather it is increasingly also being used for cancer detection and therapeutic purposes. Furthermore, developments such as 3D/4D imaging, elastography, and innovations in probe design have stimulated ultrasound sales in the last five years.

The emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China are for the first time investing in high-end product purchases owing to restructured government healthcare initiatives and the construction of new hospital facilities.

Key reasons to purchase this research

• Which will be the largest growth opportunities in the ultrasound market?

• What are the key drivers and resistors that will effect the growth of the ultrasound market?

• What are the new advances in ultrasound and which of the advances offer significant potential in the future?

• How have the leading companies built strong positions in the various segments of the ultrasound market?

• What is the trend in terms of new product launches in the various ultrasound segments?
