Diagnostic devices are equipment that are used to determine the nature or origin of a certain occurrence, which is generally connected to a medical issue. Magnetic resonance imaging machines, temperature sensors, and pacemakers are examples of diagnostic equipment. Diagnostic medical equipment and supplies let doctors measure and observe many aspects of a patient's health in order to reach a diagnosis. Following the determination of a diagnosis, the doctor might next propose an appropriate treatment strategy.
According to WHO (2021), on the global market today, there are an estimated 2 million different types of medical devices, which are classified into over 7000 generic device categories. Common medical operations — from bandaging an injured ankle to detecting HIV/AIDS, implanting an artificial hip, or any surgical intervention – would be impossible without medical gadgets.
