A large global medical imaging equipment manufacturer is to begin production of Computed Tomography (CT) scanners in Russian in early 2017, pending receipt of final approvals from the Russian authorities.

The company concluded contracts for licensing and sub-contracting the production of medical equipment (CT scanners) with one of the largest X-Ray equipment manufacturers in Russia.

Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation (TMSC; Otawara-shi, Tochigi-ken, Japan) signed the contracts with ZAO Roentgenprom (Moscow, Russia) under the Russian government's program to reform the entire Russian healthcare system to 2020. The government intends to implement advanced healthcare technologies, and to improve and expand the healthcare infrastructure including advanced diagnostic imaging systems. The Russian government is giving preference to medical equipment produced locally. ZOA Roentgenprom produces a wide range of medical X-Ray equipment including digital mammography Computed Radiography (CR) systems, digital fluorography systems, mobile X-Ray rooms, and related software.

In September 2015, Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation established the Russia-Japan Cardiac Imaging Training Center in Moscow, Russia, together with Medical Excellence JAPAN, as part of Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry program to encourage international expansion of Japanese medical services. The training center is intended to provide diagnostic medical imaging training and contribute to improving life expectancy, and the quality of life in Russia.
