$500 Billion Health Care Spend Boosts BRIC Countries' Diagnostic Imaging Sales Despite Global Recession, According to Millennium Research Group
Date:10/13/2009

WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group (MRG), the global authority on medical technology market intelligence, sustained economic growth since 2003 in Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) has enabled massive increases in health care expenditures with an astounding $500 billion spent in 2009 alone. One effect has been improved access to diagnostic imaging scanners. Findings from MRG's newest series of global diagnostic imaging reports reveal that the BRIC economies will fuel much of the growth occurring in the global market for diagnostic imaging systems throughout the recession and beyond.

The BRIC nations have not been as affected by the economic downturn. As a result, the BRIC governments are still concentrating on longer-term initiatives to improve their health care infrastructure.

Through the program, many Russian facilities have been able to upgrade existing systems and replace obsolete imaging technology. It has also enabled hospitals to purchase advanced systems, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners.

"While Russia has concentrated on a widespread renewal, Brazil, India, and China have focused on improving quality and access to health care, particularly in smaller cities and rural areas. A top priority for this funding is the acquisition of newer medical equipment, such as imaging scanners," says Ravindra Sharma, Senior Analyst at MRG. "With huge latent demand for imaging systems and increasing availability of government funds, patient care is vastly improving. Diagnostic imaging vendors have embraced these opportunities as they search for revenue streams beyond the US where credit con
