How Much Does it Cost to Buy a Mobile MRI?

Curious about the price of getting a Mobile MRI and feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the options out there?

No worries, Medco Blue is here to be your go-to guide through the whole process, giving you all the important info you need before making a big decision.

Checking Out Prices in the Market

Let's dig into the details of how much it costs to buy either a fixed-site MRI Suite or a Mobile MRI in the current market. If you're thinking about new equipment, a fixed-site MRI can start at $1,500,000 and go up, while a Mobile MRI can exceed $2 million. Now, if you're considering refurbished options, a refurbished MRI Suite starts from $150,000 and up, and you can find a refurbished Mobile MRI for around $250,000 and up.

Additional Costs to Think About

When going for an MRI Suite, it's not just about the initial cost. You've got to think about extra expenses, like making sure the room is set up right with the MRI door (for installation and deinstallation), hiring a good installation team, and getting the software up and running (operating expenses). These costs can pile up and stress you out. 

On the flip side, with a Mobile MRI, the fees usually revolve around the trailer's price (sometimes included in the buying package), generator costs, and optional add-ons like awnings for patient comfort in tough weather. Beyond these, a Mobile MRI is an all-in-one solution that shows up at your place without any surprise extra fees.
