If your facility is in the market for an extremity MRI scanner, one of the first questions that probably came to your mind was, "How much does an extremity MRI cost?" Considering the fact that these systems come in four different categories that can range widely in price this is an excellent question- one that we'll answer in the video and chart below.
The biggest factor in determining how much a scanner will cost is magnet strength. Stronger magnets generally offer better image quality and, therefore, come with a higher price tag. Another determining factor will be the age of the particular system. As is the case in many industries, newer equals more expensive. Finally, another key factor will be whether or not the system can image a patient's shoulders.
