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

“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.

This article's title is a great question, but one that depends on a lot of variables. That's probably not what you were hoping to read when you typed the question into Google, but it's absolutely true. The value of your specific nuclear camera will depend on model, age, condition, options, and accessories.

Used GE MRI for Sale? Read This Before You Sell

In 2012, 37 baseball cards were discovered in an Ohio attic – untouched for 100 years. They fetched over $500,000 at auction and made an Ohio family very happy. Like anyone who doesn’t deal in baseball cards every day they went through a process whereby 1) they thought they had something of value 2) they had the cards expertly graded and 3) they consulted a company who specialized in sports memorabilia to handle the sale. Every step in that process is important. It still pains me to remember that I traded my entire baseball card collection about 30 years ago and got very little in return. I don’t really want to talk about that...

But if you are considering trading your GE MRI system back to the OEM or perhaps listing it on DotMed or throwing it open to the highest bidder at auction; STOP! Do you really know what you have? Do you know the features that most buyers around the world value? Do you know the best way to take it to potential sellers? Block Imaging has bought and sold hundreds of MRIs over the last 10 years and we’d like to share a few things that you might want to note before you “list” your system. The good news? There are fewer value drivers than you might think
