A life is priceless so what's a million compare to it? Give me 10 billion I also not interested to risk my child's life! Birth rate is already so low so every single NS man is very precious to the country too. MOD must do something about this!pirate wrote:To put things into perspective, this is about how much they pay a year for one CEO of one GLC, give or take a million. I leave it to KSP to decide which is better value. But I have no doubt MOD can afford it.3Boys wrote:And oh, the annual price (cost) of mitigating the risk of (not preventing) a SINGLE death from this SINGLE medical condition, at $300 per scan, is therefore approximately $5.4M, EXcluding the initial cost of purchasing the scanners, at $4.5M.

Does all the hospitals have the ultrasound scanner. If yes and the heart condition doesn't only appear at a certain age, then maybe MINDEF can "mobilize" the machines from the hospitals. Get boys to scan at younger age and can go to any of the hospital for the scanning. If still not enough machines, then MINDEF buy a few but at least not as many of they were to take full load of the scanning.
