Globalization of the Pre-Owned Medical Equipment Market
Did you know that many Linear Accelerators in operation in the U.S. today were pre-owned linacs sourced in Europe, Australia or Asian countries? Or that many pre-owned systems in operation in Latin America came from the U.S.? The world of pre-owned Radiation Therapy and Diagnostic Imaging Equipment has become truly global, and ROS is at the heart of this globalization. ROS recently completed a de-installation project in Central Europe where a Linear Accelerator system was relocated to a hospital in the Caribbean.
The complexities of an overseas project such as this can be enormously challenging. In the realm of Radiation Oncology, there are often regulatory obstacles, logistical challenges, language barriers, and sensitive timelines to consider.
