Regional purchasing managers in Denmark are actively organising how to go about purchasing the first 35-50 scanners that the government has agreed should be ordered this year in the context of its cancer treatment plan, adopted in autumn 2007. A total of DKr 850m has been earmarked for the purchase of MRI , CT, Pet-CT and Spect-CT scanners. The first of the 35-50 scanners bought are expected to be MRI and CT scanners. According to the Danish medical device industry association, Medicoindustrien, regional purchasing officers have been identifying the regions that will conduct procedures, and the procedures that the particular regions will handle.
