This article was originally published in Clinica
Australia is increasing patient access to MRI with 13 more units to be set up this year, all of which will be eligible for Medicare funding. Tenders are being called from operators, and public-private partnerships will be considered for two of the locations: the general hospitals at Wollongong and Launceston. In all, once all 13 are online, MRI access will have increased by 10%, to 126.
