How Much Does it Cost to Rent/Lease a Mobile MRI?

Why Is Mobile Rental Needed? 

Wondering why you might need a Mobile MRI Rental?

If you operate a smaller facility requiring an MRI but are hesitant to undergo extensive site reconstruction or face a sudden surge (backlog) in patient volume, Mobile MRI Rentals could be the solution you're seeking.

However, the concern often revolves around the cost associated with renting a Mobile MRI and whether it outweighs the benefits of purchasing a new complete MRI system. Let's delve into exploring the average pricing for Mobile MRI Rentals.

Average Pricing

Renting a Mobile MRI is akin to finding an apartment – crucial to match your budget and expectations. While a higher budget and longer rental duration offer better options both price-wise and model-wise, there are numerous affordably priced refurbished Mobile MRI models that might suit your needs in the short and long term.

Depending on the specifics of the Mobile MRI, whether refurbished or new, the monthly rental price can range from $20,000 to $65,000. For facilities aiming to save on costs, opting for a MRI Rental can fulfill your requirements while keeping within budget.

Applications Training

If your techs are not familiar with the MRI scanner model that’s available, we have professionals that will provide 1 to 3 days of applications training. Typical training last one to two days. The cost for application training typically falls between $1,000 to $2,000 per day.

Transportation/ Delivery time

However, keep in mind the transportation fee, which can range from $7,500 to $15,000, depending on the distance between your facility and the nearest available Mobile MRI Rentals.

Additions to Consider: Awning and Generator 


If you locate in the cold or rainy weather area, it is recommended for you to add the awning to help keep your patient dry and warm while transferring them to get an MRI scan. While this enhances patient comfort, it may extend the setup time and add extra fees to your budget.


In rural areas or if you're unsure about setting up power lines, leasing a generator is a recommended choice. However, if the generator is included with the Mobile MRI Rentals, it might affect your budget, with prices ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 based on location and local electricity/gas rates.
