Portable ultrasound is a type of imaging medical device that uses high-frequency sound waves to visualize the internal body organs. Portable ultrasound devices are available to wireless features such as Bluetooth and near-field communication to deliver sophisticated home-based healthcare for patients. Such wireless devices help increase mobility, connectivity, and portability. The portable ultrasound device contains a probe for the transmission of high-frequency ultrasonic sound waves into the patient’s body. These high-frequency sound waves reflected by body organs into the probe and are transmitted to a display and generate the image by using echoes. The portable ultrasound machine system is used to visualize kidneys, liver, human fetus, heart, blood vessels, and other internal organs. These devices are commonly used in wide range of areas including emergency medicine, musculoskeletal imaging, among others.

Portable ultrasound devices market is growing at a significant rate due to the increase in the geriatric population and rising in the prevalence of various chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and various cardiovascular diseases, increase in the spectrum of applications, and technology advancement in the manufacturing of portable ultrasound devices (3D and 4D) are the important factors affecting the growth of portable ultrasound devices market. Similarly, increase in public-private partnership investments, rise in preference for minimally or non-invasive therapeutic and diagnostic techniques, higher healthcare expenditures will also help the growth of portable ultrasound devices market. However, high cost for the portable ultrasound devices, the risk of patient data storage, lack of skilled and experienced sonographers, and strict regulatory policies for product approval are hampering the portable ultrasound devices market growth.
