ANTAS JR., Ricardo Mendes  e  ALMEIDA, Rafael da Silva. Medical diagnosis and corporate use of Brazilian territory: an analysis of the spatial productive circuit of diagnostic reagents. Saude soc. [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.2, pp.674-690. ISSN 0104-1290.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-12902015000200022.

The formation of what Milton Santos called the technical-scientific and informational milieu is marked by the profound interaction between science and technique, both under shelter of the market. In this milieu, we see new technical objects arising, whose content is given by science. When dealing specifically with medicine, this trait is still more remarkable, which is evident, for instance, when we analyze technical diagnosis systems in the current period, for they come to configure specialized economic segments with high added value production. In this article, we discuss how a significant set of companies focused on diagnosis concurs to a new type of urbanization in Brazilian territory, considering the Health Economy and the health-industry complex. Marked by the corporate use of territory, this urbanization is shaped by the establishment of spatial productive circuits and their respective circles of space cooperation, and one of its main characteristics has been the concentration and centralization of capital.

Palavras-chave : Spatial Productive Circuit; Circles of Space Cooperation; Corporate Use of Territory; Human Geography; Geographic Space.
