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

Why Is Mobile Rental Needed? 

Wondering why you might need a Mobile CT Rental?

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

However, the concern often revolves around the cost associated with renting a Mobile CT and whether it outweighs the benefits of purchasing a new complete CT system. Let's talk about the average price of Mobile CT Rentals.

Average Pricing

On average, a Mobile MRI is needed for 1-3 months minimum for rentals, compared to 2 weeks to 1 month period for a Mobile CT. Mobile PET/CT is more likely to be used on route for a few days per week. So, to save cost on acquiring all Mobile systems at once, you can consider renting a Mobile CT for peak patient volume period. 

Renting a Mobile CT is relatively affordable, of course, the longer renting time would get you a lower cost of renting. Typically, you would expect to rent a Mobile CT at around $28,000 to $30,000 range per month, plus transportation. For facilities aiming to save on costs, opting for a Mobile CT Rental can fulfill your requirements while keeping within budget.

Applications Training

If your physicians/technicians are not familiar with the Mobile CT scanner model that’s available, we have professionals that will provide 1 to 2 days of applications training. The cost for application training typically falls between $1,000 to $2,000 per day.

Transportation/ Delivery time

Depending on your location, whether you request to have an available Mobile 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 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 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 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 CT Rentals, it might affect your budget, with prices ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 based on location and local electricity/gas rates.
