Global Gyneco-obstetric Ultrasound Systems Market: Overview
Obstetrics and gynecology are medical specialties functioning together or separately to ensure complete health care of women. Among these, obstetrics is associated with the care of pregnant women and fetuses as well as with childbirth and the immediate period following childbirth. Gynecology takes care of issues affecting the reproductive system of women including the uterus, the fallopian tubes, the cervix, the ovaries, and the vagina. Obstetric ultrasound has become an indispensable part of the antenatal care worldwide. It is employed to identify all ailments associated with the above-mentioned organs. Two types of probes are generally utilized in monitoring procedures viz. abdominal probes and vaginal probes. Vaginal probes offer better resolution and accurate diagnosis, as the distance between the probe and the target organ is reduced. The demand for specialized gyneco-obstetric ultrasound has been high for the last two decades and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
