Portable Diagnostic Equipment- Yes, They Exist!

Posted by sainath on November 12th, 2018

Portable diagnostic equipment is expected to be a fast growing segment, and competitors are focusing on developing new and innovative portable equipment during the forecast period. Owing to their ease of use and point-of-care applications, their adoption rates are steadily increasing not only for emergency and intensive care units in hospitals, but also as a part of homecare organizations. There is also a growing need for portable devices in the emergency care units for easy and quick usage, faster interventions for acute events, and better monitoring. Some of the well-known products are Samsung Electronics’ 32-SLICE CT scanner, Brain Biosciences’ CERPET portable PET scanner, Siemens Healthcare’s Mobilett mira max portable X-ray systems and Sonosite’s MicroMaxx portable ultrasound system.
