7 Reasons to Consider Owning a Mobile MRI

Buying_Mobile_MRI.jpgIt's become relatively common for imaging facilities to use mobile MRI trailers owned by equipment dealers, brokers, or service companies on a rental basis. There are a lot of reasons for renting, but there are at least as many (some of them even the same) reasons why a facility might want to take a page out of the dealer playbook and own a mobile MRI system of their own.

We talked with our resident MRI market expert, Steve Rentz, and learned seven big reasons why an imaging facility may want to consider buying a mobile MRI instead of simply renting. Take a look at the clip below to find out for yourself.

Why Mobile MRI?

The Snapshot

Below are the reasons to consider buying a mobile MRI trailer that Steve covers in the video. Watch the clip to hear about each reason in more detail.

  • Testing a market
  • Overcoming a lack of space
  • Gaining a foothold as you prep your permanent space
  • Serving multiple locations
  • Upgradability
  • Speculation
  • Generating rental revenue

The Takeaway

There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to outfitting your facility with MRI equipment. The list of variables at play puts almost every facility in unique circumstances in one way or another. If, however, the needs at your facility call for flexibility, space savings, or an ace-in-the-hole cost offset, the mobile MRI option might be the perfect fit.
