mri-coil-priceIf you’re an MRI user who would like to expand the scanning capabilities at your facility, you’re going to need to invest in some additional coils. We can't promise that upgrading your stable of coils will be cheap, but we can help you get the process started with a little basic budget building. 

Below you’ll find current average pricing for a variety of MRI coils, both new and refurbished.

16 to 32-Channel Coils

The most expensive coils fall in the 16 to 32-channel category. New MRI coils in this category cost between $40,000 (ex: wrist coil) and $120,000 (ex: breast biopsy coil) depending on their size and application. Refurbished 16 to 32-channel coils are becoming increasingly available on the secondary market, and they're well worth looking into. A used parts vendor can save you an average of 40% or 50% off the price of a new coil when you purchase outright, or even more if you have a coil to exchange! 

4 to 8-Channel Coils

Most of the less expensive coils fall in the 4 to 8-channel category. Buying them new will cost anywhere from $12,000 (ex: wrist coil) to $80,000 (ex: neurovascular coil). Unlike 16-32 channel coils, refurbished 4 and 8-channel coils are plentiful on the secondary market. These will only cost an average of $8,000 to $25,000 outright, or $6,000 to $12,000 with an exchange.
