Not a week goes by where I don’t get the question, "How much does a PET/CT cost?" We are involved with the buying, selling and installing of refurbished PET/CT scanners on a daily basis. So, while the answer depends on a number of factors, the single most determinative factor is the number of slices the CT has.
The old adage, “you get what you pay for” is very true in the realm of PET/CT. The more slices, the more money you will pay. Watch the video below to see current average prices for used PET/CT scanners across the full range of slice counts.

In addition to higher availability of 40 and 64 slice systems, there's more good news: No matter which manufacturer or model of PET/CT you choose, quality service is readily available. We have had good success working with both OEMs and reputable third-party vendors to service PET/CTs.
If you are contemplating a PET/CT purchase in the next 12 months, your best bet is to contact a reputable company (hint: Block Imaging!) to find out what’s available on the market right now.
