A Magnetic Resonance Machine (MRI) machine uses a group of radio waves for the development of images for bones and organs of an individual. This machine is generally used for the diagnosis of medical conditions and determination of future treatment.
When considering hospital procedures, one of the primary methods that come to mind is an MRI itself and the fact that it costs so much. So what exactly is the reason for an MRI to cost so much?
The reason an MRI scan itself costs so much is that the process of retrieving an MRI machine into a facility has a significant cost of its own. This is because along with the fact that the sales price of a machine alone could go as high as 3 million USD, there are also additional costs before implementation. The other expenses include:
- Maintenance, repair, spare parts that may be required.
- Delivery costs.
- Import/Export costs.
- Training for the operation of the machine costs.
- Energy usage costs.
In addition to the costs mentioned above, the thing about the installation of an MRI is that the device needs to have a room large enough to accommodate the large equipment. The room is known as an MRI suite and could cost thousands of dollars alone.
The reason pricing isn’t always readily available when it comes to purchasing medical imaging equipment that is used and refurbished is because they consider the costs above. Once all the prices are readily available for buyers, a quotation is made. However one of the most significant advantages of purchasing medical imaging equipment that is refurbished is that it is merely a fraction of a cost for what an individual would pay for a brand new piece of equipment.
So once it has been decided that used and refurbished medical imaging equipment is the way to go, determining a place for the purchase is what should be next. The place of purchase should be of legitimate and reputable consideration to avoid getting duped.
