Ultrasound represents a low-cost and efficacious imaging technology that continues to help radiologists and others collect significant clinical data about patients. Ultrasound is appropriately suited to many patients. No other imaging modality gives patients a real-time viewing at their anatomy or inspires discussions with physicians about their symptoms and the evidence of disease on the monitor. Ultrasound is radiation-free, patient-friendly and less-expensive. The adoption of this modality by all categories of hospitals and other healthcare institutions has given rise to new market opportunities for manufacturers of ultrasound systems and components suppliers. Ultrasound imaging systems have become conventional in almost all the offices of cardiologists, obstetricians, surgeons and urologists among other specialists. New uses, such as the applications of ultrasound in dispensing emergency medicine, along with new hand-held portable systems are helping to further propel the medical marketplace for the technology.

This report surveys almost all of the companies known to be marketing, manufacturing or developing ultrasound equipment and supplies in the world. Each company is discussed in extensive depth with a section on its history, product line, business and marketing analysis, and a subjective commentary of the company's market position. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and market data are also included.
