Over the years, ultrasound technology has evolved, from devices that can send electronically generated sound waves, to tools that can detect and diagnose various diseases. Owing to its speed, efficacy, cost-effectiveness, and noninvasive nature, the technology has always been widely used. Today, the increasing commercialization of hand-held devices with advanced computational power has led to the rise in the popularity of hand-carried ultrasounds in healthcare facilities around the globe.
The integration of innovative functionalities into ultrasound devices has further improved clinician adaptability to these systems. With the improved and sophisticated algorithms incorporated into the technology, ultrasound tools are now capable of enhanced image reconstruction and display. Further, real-time 3D ultrasound (3DUS) enables clinicians visualize tissues and organs in real-time, improving the guidance offered by ultrasound in interventional medical procedures. Images captured by the 3DUS system are volume-rendered, which makes it easier to distinguish between the tissues and the surrounding fluids, particularly important in cardiology, obstetrics, and gynecology.
The rapid development of newer features has resulted in a high level of competitiveness among the manufacturers of ultrasound instrumentation, forcing them to constantly add innovative capabilities to their current products. In the future, ultrasound imaging is predicted to become more efficient and low-cost, with the integration of emerging technologies boosting the diagnostic features of the equipment.
