Introduction to Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound System
The transcranial doppler ultrasound system is the technology that provides real time measures of cerebrovascular functions and measures the blood velocity through brain arteries. It is measured by using the echoes of ultrasonic waves that move transracially. In these systems, the high frequency sound waves are bounced back through the substances that are then detected and measured by the probes. The system basically works on the principle of Doppler Effect owing to which different frequency of echoes are generated depending on the speed and direction of the blood flow. This system is also used as neuroimaging tool for measuring the blood flow velocity in cerebral owing to the neural activation when different tasks are performed.
Market Size and Forecast
The global transcranial doppler ultrasound system market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 6.5% over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027 owing to its ability to detect various cerebrovascular disease and heart blood flow related diseases. The rising technological innovations and development coupled with high investment in healthcare sector and increased rate of diseases that require ultrasound to be done are anticipated to increase the market growth. The market is segmented by application type, end user type, equipment type, display mode type and mode type. The equipment type is further segmented into imaging and non-imaging out of which, the imaging segment is anticipated to have leading shares on the account of its efficient features that could combine derived anatomical information with velocity information such that color coded maps are generated, making it possible to look into the blood movement through various arteries, veins and heart. The application type is segmented into sickle cell disease, acute ischemic stroke, intracranial steno occlusive disease and micro emboli detection, out of which the sickle cell disease segment is anticipated to have significant growth on the back of high stroke risk in the early childhood period and possibility of its prevention by using trans cranial doppler ultrasound technique as primary stroke prevention technique. The end user segment is segmented into hospitals, diagnostic labs and others out of which the hospitals segment is anticipated to have maximum shares in market growth on the back of the fact that the hospitals are multi-specialty and have number of healthcare infrastructure facilities coupled with availability of advanced features and facilities required for functioning of these ultrasound systems.

The technical advancements for instance, use of NeuroBot System which has three robot arms and an endoscope developed to perform neurosurgical procedures are anticipated to drive the market growth. The portable transcranial doppler ultrasound system makes it possible to measure early strokes owing to large vessel occlusion. These features allow the integration of the traditional ultrasound system with IT system for instance, it is possible to generate and save data for future use.
Large Application Areas
The transcranial doppler ultrasound system is used in large number of applications and the latest advancements are making it possible to use it over a large range. The rising demand of these systems for measuring the cardio vascular conditions and use in pregnancy cases are anticipated to improve the market growth. The increasing neurological disorders with around 1 million people experiencing concussion every year coupled with ability of using it for variable ages, genders, blood pressure and various motor activity disorders are anticipated to increase the market growth. The possibility of using them in integration with other systems for instance MRI, CT scan and MRA is anticipated to drive the market.
The government investments in healthcare sector in order to provide better healthcare facilities for the diagnosis and remediation is anticipated to increase the market growth. The government is investing more to promote and increase general public awareness regarding the various diseases and disorders which is anticipated to improve the market growth.
The absence of acoustic window coupled with low spatial resolution are considerable limitations of the system which are anticipated to hinder the market growth. The inability of the system to measure large basal arteries and various unfavorable reimbursement policies are anticipated effect the market growth adversely. Additionally, the lack of skilled technicians that could effectively operate the transcranial doppler ultrasound system are expected to hinder market growth.
