Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/15/2018 -- Pediatric ultrasound is a safe, noninvasive test that uses high frequency sound waves to generate precise images of the blood vessels and internal organs of children’s abdomen. Ultrasound does not use involve radiation, is painless, and is particularly useful for evaluating pelvic, abdominal, or scrotal pain in children. It is carried out to obtain a complete view of congenital as well as acquired diseases in children.
As per statistics of Center for Disease Control and Prevention, blunt trauma is the leading cause of death and disability among children in the U.S. Due to the increased risk of radiation-induced scanning such as computed tomography, the use of abdominal ultrasound for blunt abdominal trauma among children has increased.
The Pediatric Ultrasound Market is developing mainly due to technological advancements such as 3D and 4d imaging for ultrasound systems, increased prevalence of pediatric diseases that need imaging for diagnostic purposes, increasing awareness about early diagnosis. Additionally, vast untapped opportunities in developing and less-developed countries are also expected to fuel the market’s growth over the next few years.
Conversely, lack of skilled personnel for operating imaging devices and carrying out imaging on children is restraining the growth of the pediatric ultrasound market. The limitations of ultrasound diagnostics is also hindering the growth of this market to some extent.

The scope of ultrasound for diagnostics is more than for abdominal areas of the body. In a recent industry development, high intensity ultrasound was utilized for collapsed intervertebral discs, which would otherwise need invasive surgery.
Developed at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Oxford University, the technology allows ultrasound to be targeted at a precise point on the spine. High-intensity focused ultrasound is being considered as the probable new approach for the treatment of chronic back pain that overcomes the limitations of predecessor techniques such as partial disc replacement. High-intensity focused ultrasound involves liquefying the core of the disc, which is advantageous over partial disc replacement that has chances of leaking of the implant through the wall of the disc.
