:: 1 minute read ::

mammo-tube-replacement-costIf your digital mammo machine's X-ray tube is on its way out or, perhaps, has already failed, you should know that contacting the original manufacturer for a replacement is just one of the sourcing options available to you. It is also, in the majority of scenarios, the most expensive one.

Below you'll find current average prices for X-ray tubes from the most popular digital mammography systems. Pricing for both new OEM and after-market tubes and used tubes from independent parts providers is included.

The Numbers

GE 2000D
GE Essential
Used (2-3 y.o.)
$7,000 - $9,000
$13,000 - $15,000
$12,000 - $14,000
$6,000 - $8,000
$9,000 - $11,000
Used (4-5 y.o.)
$4,000 - $7,000
$11,000 - $12,000
$9,000 - $12,000
$4,000 - $6,000
$6,000 - $8,000
New Aftermarket


The Takeaway

At some point, your X-ray tube will need to be replaced. The good news is that it doesn't have to cost $30,000 or more each time you replace it. On top of that, X-ray tubes are just one class of mammo replacement part that is available from independent providers.

Browse and order online from our mammography parts inventory.
