These opportunities are why we've put together a video guide to help you learn what your used bone densitometer model is typically worth in today's secondary market. After the video, read on for some selling tips that can help you maximize your system's value when you're ready to sell.

Used Medical Imaging Equipment Valuations: FMV versus OLV

FMV versus OLV.jpg

While the automotive industry can easily point to Kelley Blue Book for current and depreciated values, putting a firm value figure on diagnostic imaging equipment has no similar benchmark for standardization. Moore's Law (the observation that the number of transistors in a dense, integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years), rapidly developing software, and a seemingly endless scope of imaging modalities and manufacturers are just a few of the factors keeping the "Blue Book" level of relative ease and consistency out of reach.

Of course, everyone who asks, "What is my imaging system worth?" would love to have an immediate answer with as many zeros as possible. The aforementioned factors, however, combined with the circumstances of your decision to sell, mean the proper response to this question requires that even more questions be asked. We'll breakdown the key questions below to help you learn what to expect as you bring your used diagnostic imaging equipment to market.

Top 5 Rarest Used MRI Scanners (and Best Substitute MRI Machines)

Posted by Steve Rentz

Jan 26, 2017 1:50:00 PM

“You can’t always get what you want...” sang the Rolling Stones (quick… what year/what album?) and although they probably weren’t talking about used MRI scanners, it certainly holds true in this industry. At this time, there is no shortage of high-quality, late-model, pre-owned imaging equipment available throughout the world. If you do some proper due diligence you can save a lot of money and, in many cases a lot of time by capitalizing on these opportunities. But you can also WASTE a lot of time trying to find systems that are either not plentiful on the market yet, or in such demand that they move instantly and at inflated prices. 

Here are some examples of rare used MRI machines and some viable alternatives to them if you just don’t have the time (or the money) to keep digging.
