PETCTPriceCostIt's a question our team addresses several times every week: "How much does a PET/CT scanner cost?"  Well, the answer depends on a number of factors, and is seldom exactly the same from site-to-site, but we've compiled the ranges of current average pricing to help guide your search.

There is one cost factor that is more telling than any other: slice count. The more slices the CT portion of the machine can capture, the more you'll pay for it. Watch the video or read the list below to see cost information for PET/CT scanners across the full range of slice counts.
