If you’ve recently purchased a CT scanner or are in the market for one, you’re probably beginning to research how much service for your new equipment will cost. We're here to help by revealing some average numbers you’re likely to find as you shop around in the 2018-2019 market (see the table at the end). 

Before we do though, we want to explain some of the factors that are considered when service contract quotes are being built. This is important because where your individual CT scanner fits in these criteria will, to a large degree, determine its service price.

Like any other piece of medical imaging equipment in your facility, you rely on your PET/CT scanner to serve the diagnostic needs of your patients. And just like any other piece of medical imaging equipment, your PET/CT is going to need periodic maintenance and repair to make sure it stays in service as much as possible. We'll be frank: quality service coverage isn't cheap, but there are ways to save on your service purchase- namely, working with an independent service organization (ISO).

Being an imaging equipment ISO ourselves, we've compiled below current average price ranges for one year of full PET/CT service coverage. Individual pricing will vary based on the make, model, and age of your system as well as the service options you choose, but these figures will give you a place to start planning. See more about the types of coverage we offer here.
