PET-CT-Price-Guide

It's a question our team addresses several times every week: "How much does a PET/CT scanner cost?"  Well, the answer depends on a number of factors, and is seldom exactly the same from site-to-site, but we've compiled the ranges of current average pricing to help guide your search.

There is one cost factor that is more telling than any other: slice count. The more slices the CT portion of the machine can capture, the more you'll pay for it. Watch the video or read the list below to see cost information for PET/CT scanners across the full range of slice counts.

An upgrade, replacement, another scanner in an existing equipment stable- whatever your purpose in buying an Optima 660, doing so outright may not be in the cards for your facility at this point. If not, the secondary market can help you lower that up-front cost with a more manageable lease plan.

Sensation 16 Lease Refresh

We all know it's important to have the right tools to serve patients, but many of us also know that these tools can come at a cost too high to buy them outright. If the tool your facility happens to need is a 16-slice CT scanner, this article has good news for you: lease terms are available to make upgrading more feasible for imaging centers that need to be budget-conscious.

While it's understood that leasing equipment lowers starting costs, you should also know that some lease providers include the price of the scanner's first year of service coverage in a bundle price and break it out across the full term of the lease as part of the monthly payment. This allows for 12 months of lower payments before you ever have to tap into the funds you would normally set aside for equipment upkeep.

Below, find what you can expect your monthly payments to be for a lease on a Siemens Sensation 16 under our most commonly purchased term length, 60-months.

Excellent! 16-slice scanners are standard equipment at many facilities and the Emotion is a system that offers a compact footprint and notable dose reduction features. This is a great pick!

Trouble is... an outright purchase isn't financially feasible at the moment. Don't worry. There are ways of getting the equipment you need without waiting to set aside a lump sum for the full purchase price.
