MARTINEZ ROMERO, Misdrialis et al. Technology and globalization on the prognosis of patients with rectal cancer. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2019, vol.48, n.2  Epub 01-Jun-2019. ISSN 1561-3046.

From the 20th century to the present, the process of globalization has characterized the development of the world economy. In this context, the developed countries are those that have direct management and technological control, while the underdeveloped countries have been affected by the accelerated introduction of new technologies and their high cost. The technological development in today's society is an important factor in the management of diseases such as cancer. The rectal tumor is the third most commonly diagnosed type of cancer and the third cause of cancer death for both sexes. For its staging, several diagnostic means have been developed, within these, endoscopic ultrasound elastography is a high impact technique. In Cuba, this advanced technology is available to all patients, which shows that it is possible to face the challenges that globalization imposes on technological development. This paper presents the opinions of the authors, related to the influence of the globalization policy on technological development and its impact on the prognosis of patients with rectal cancer.
