Like any other piece of medical imaging equipment in your facility, you rely on your PET/CT scanner to serve the diagnostic needs of your patients. And just like any other piece of medical imaging equipment, your PET/CT is going to need periodic maintenance and repair to make sure it stays in service as much as possible. We'll be frank: quality service coverage isn't cheap, but there are ways to save on your service purchase- namely, working with an independent service organization (ISO).

Being an imaging equipment ISO ourselves, we've compiled below current average price ranges for one year of full PET/CT service coverage. Individual pricing will vary based on the make, model, and age of your system as well as the service options you choose, but these figures will give you a place to start planning.
