HOUSTON, TEXAS, US, March 30, 2021 / — Considering the crucial role medical ultrasound devices will play in triage, diagnose, monitor, and treat COVID-19 patients, IndustryEssence has published the new research report: ‘Medical Ultrasound Market: Impact of COVID-19, Lung Ultrasound, Role of AI in POC and Primary Care Ultrasound, FDA Enforcement Policy, Advancement in Portable Ultrasound, Value Chain Insights, and Forecasts (optimistic, pessimistic, & neutral scenarios) 2019–2025‘. The portable ultrasound devices market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% between 2020 and 2025.

Market Trends Amid Pandemic:

COVID-19: Role of Portable Ultrasound in Triage, Diagnose, Monitor, and Treat COVID-19 Patients: Certainly, ultrasound devices are playing a crucial role in fighting Coronavirus Pandemic. Lung ultrasound helps in diagnosis, treatment and evaluation of severe pneumonia, an illness associated with severe cases of COVID-19. With more than 5.5 Mn (and growing) Coronavirus cases, lung ultrasound is helping doctors and healthcare professionals in deciding which patient needs an intensive-care and special attention. However, World Health Organization (WHO) is not recommending lung ultrasound as a primary tool to diagnose and monitor COVID-19 patients; healthcare professionals globally find it useful tool in triage. The portable, handheld ultrasound systems (that cost a tenth of a cart-based system) are preferred by healthcare professionals.

FDA Reduces Medical Imaging Regulations: Driving Demand for Portable Ultrasound Devices and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based Systems: Considering the rapid spread of COVID-19, in the last week of April 2020, FDA issued guidance for medical imaging devices. FDA stated that imaging devices can be modified for portable use, through the addition of a battery and other changes, without creating an “undue risk.” Also offered flexibility in ultrasound regulations by allowing ultrasound image capturing to be performed by healthcare practitioners who are not trained in sonography, under the guidance of a trained/licensed practitioner. FDA also directed enhancements in image analysis software, such as the addition of capabilities for lung segmentation and measurements, specifically for diagnosing COVID-19. Butterfly Network, EchoNous, Clarius, Exo Imaging, Rivanna, Healcerion, Biim, & Yor Labs are few of many notable startups
