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

Why Is Mobile Rental Needed? 

Wondering why you might need a Mobile PET/CT Rental?

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

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

Average Pricing

Compared to renting a Mobile MRI, renting a Mobile PET/CT is more affordable as the Mobile PET/CT rental is expected to be shorter, normally people would rent a Mobile PET/CT from 2 weeks to 2 months period of time.

Talking about finance, renting a Mobile PET is relatively less expensive, of course, the longer renting time would get you a lower cost of renting. Typically, you would expect to rent a Mobile PET/CT at around the low or mid $30,000 range per month. For facilities aiming to save on costs, opting for a PET/CT Rental can fulfill your requirements while keeping within budget.

Applications Training

If your techs are not familiar with the PET/CT scanner model that’s available, we have professionals that will provide 1 to 3 days of applications training. Typical training lasts one to two days as PET/CT generally require shorter application training than MRI. The cost for application training typically falls between $1,500 to $2,500 per day.

Transportation/ Delivery time

Depending on your location, whether you request to have an available Mobile PET/CT Rentals trainer, and the availability of the supplier; you can expect delivery within 3 to 10 business days.

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 PET/CT 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 PET/CT 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. Generally, a Mobile PET/CT standard universal power requirement for the trailers is 480V/3 Phase/150 amps, with Russell Stoll connection that most facilities can connect straight to their facility with no issue. 

However, if you request to have the generator included with the Mobile PET/CT Rentals, it might affect your budget, with prices ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 based on location and local electricity/gas rates.

Quality Assurance Requirement

If you’re looking to rent the Mobile PET/CT long-term, you should also consider these additional fees to keep your Mobile PET/CT pass the Quality Assurance assessment (QA) yearly. MRI, CT, PET, X-Ray all requires phantoms for QA, and the price for phantoms is around $2500. A Mobile PET/CT typically also requires a RAM (radioactive material) license to comply with regulatory requirements. The RAM’s fee is approximately $1600 annually
