Used Medical Imaging Equipment Valuations: FMV versus OLV

While the automotive industry can easily point to Kelley Blue Book for current and depreciated values, putting a firm value figure on diagnostic imaging equipment has no similar benchmark for standardization. Moore's Law (the observation that the number of transistors in a dense, integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years), rapidly developing software, and a seemingly endless scope of imaging modalities and manufacturers are just a few of the factors keeping the "Blue Book" level of relative ease and consistency out of reach.

Of course, everyone who asks, "What is my imaging system worth?" would love to have an immediate answer with as many zeros as possible. The aforementioned factors, however, combined with the circumstances of your decision to sell, mean the proper response to this question requires that even more questions be asked. We'll breakdown the key questions below to help you learn what to expect as you bring your used diagnostic imaging equipment to market.
