2017 CT Scanner Price Cost.jpg

People ask our team daily, “How much does a CT scanner cost?” That's kind of a broad question as there are many factors at play- a little like asking how much a home costs. A pop-up camper isn’t going to cost you much (you may even be able to pull one off my neighbor’s front lawn for free) but that Tudor mansion is going to put a far larger dent in your pocketbook.

We want to help you get some clarity and get the CT scanner you need for the right price. To that end, consider the four questions below to start narrowing the options down by need and by preference. Then, stick around for the video clip where we'll break down current CT scanner costs into four simple tiers.

An interim C-arm rental can make good sense in a lot of different scenarios. Most often, when people talk to us about a rental, one of the following is true:

• You need to test your market to know if buying a C-arm will be a good investment for you.

• Your current C-arm is down for repair and you don't expect it back up anytime soon.

• You are running a training/continuing education course and need C-arms to demonstrate procedures. 

• You are working to pare down a backlog of patients.

• You have money in the operating budget, but not so much in the capital budget.

Whatever the reason, consider the following costs to make your C-arm rental work for you.

Mini C-Arm Price Guide 2018.jpg

A mini C-arm is a great way to get an image of a hand or foot without taking up all the space of a full-size C. Beyond that, a refurbished mini C-arm is a great way to save substantially over the cost of a new one. But where exactly does a mini C-arm fall on the cost spectrum? That's the question we'll be answering today.

1.5T MRI Machine Prices.jpg

The 1.5T scanner is the quintessential MRI machine. It's powerful enough to perform the vast majority of common MRI studies, readily available on the secondary market, and (relatively speaking) moderately priced- which is what you came here for, right? 

Well, before we dig in and tell you what you can expect to pay for a used 1.5T MRI machine, you should know that the price for an individual system will vary across a number of factors including availability, coils, software levels, channels, and gradient type. To account for these variables, we'll show you the full range of current average prices for each machine

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.
