mobile-mri-purchase-price-guideWe recently shared in another blog article how much it costs to rent a mobile MRI machine. Naturally, this begged the question from a number of people, "How much does it cost to buy a mobile MRI machine?" We'll answer that today.

The US mobile market is both cyclical and nuanced. In the early 2000’s, mobile route providers were growing like crazy and the supply couldn’t keep up with the demand. From 2007-2015, as many care providers brought MRI in-house, the mobile supply outweighed the demand and market pricing fell.   

Given these market dynamics, the following prices are based on mobiles that were built, refurbished, or upgraded in 2015 or later.

The Takeaway 

While these ranges are a bit broad and don’t/can't take every situation into account, they are a starting point for understanding where the budgeting process for a mobile MRI purchase is likely to take you. There are also a host of mobiles out there that need major work before going back on the road and scanning patients safely and effectively. Pricing for these can vary even more dramatically than the recent builds and refurbishments we covered above.
