How Much Does It Cost to Lease a GE Essential with Senoclaire 3D Tomo?

There's never been a better time for breast cancer screening providers to consider upgrading to 3D tomo mammography. Early adopters of 3D tomo have been leveraging the technology to get greater accuracy and fewer unnecessary callbacks for several years. On top of the accuracy gains, most insurance payers now cover 3D tomo reimbursement rates.

It seems like the cost of 3D tomo equipment is the only barrier to entry that's still hanging around, but there's good news on that front too. If you're looking to get into 3D tomo mammography on a shoe-string budget, there's an option that can get you started for a more manageable rate. For your consideration: try leasing a GE Essential 3D Tomo unit with Senoclaire.

Why GE Essential with Senoclaire

The GE Essential is a mammography system that lives in a "sweet spot" between cost and functionality. The Essential is new enough that it has many of the same core features GE's next-gen systems do, but old enough that availability on the secondary market is more common, bringing prices down.

Because SenoClaire is an upgrade, not an exclusive feature on a next-gen model, it's accessible to buyers looking for a core system on the secondary market.The SenoClaire 3D Tomo upgrade brings the improved quality of 3D imaging with no radiation dose increase over 2D imaging platforms. The overall quality and diagnostic confidence it offers make it a better tool for providers and patients alike.

Current Lease Rates for GE Essential with Senoclaire

While choosing a system on the secondary market already provides a much more affordable entry point, your starting capital outlay can go even lower when you choose lease financing. We can't speak for all providers but, using our most popular plans as an example of what's out there, an Essential with SenoClaire can be leased for variable terms of 36, 48, or even 60 months. The pricing below includes a delivered and installed GE Essential with SenoClaire 3D Tomo and a comprehensive parts and labor service plan throughout the lease term.

  36 Months 48 Months 60 Months
Monthly Payment $7,097 $6,461 $6,133

The Takeaway

Just as analog mammography gave way to digital, we believe it's only a matter of time before 3D features become the standard of care in breast cancer screening. If your facility hopes to stay closer to the front of the curve with better images, better patient experiences, and a broader range of reimbursement eligibility, the lease of a GE Essential with SenoClaire 3D Tomo can help.
