If you are currently operating a low-field MRI scanner, you may be running out of new coil purchasing options. Sadly, many of the large OEMs have stopped production on low-field MRI coils in favor of producing the more expensive, high-field MRI coils in order to push their customers to upgrade their systems. However, low-field MRI scanners have not outlived their diagnostic utility, especially if the MRI coils are fully-optimized. Furthermore, many of the most popular MRI coils options were only ever produced for low-field MRI scanners. This leaves imaging clinics and hospitals facing a tough decision: Invest in an expensive new MRI scanner and coil suite or continue operating your old system with limited coil options.
However, MRICoilsRUs has a better solution.
Rather than investing in a brand new MRI scanner, consider extending the life and utility of your current scanner by purchasing refurbished coils from MRICoilsRUs.
MRI Scanners Cost Big
Currently, a state of the art 3T MRI scanner can cost anywhere from $400,000 to $3 million dollars new, while even a new 1.5T MRI scanner can be between $150,000 and $1.2 million. Add to that patient support, the cost of installation and construction, and a brand new coil suite compatible with your new scanner and you are looking at spending hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars.
Hidden Costs Of MRI Scanner Upgrades
Beyond these expensive direct costs, there are the hidden costs of installing a new MRI machine. The first is the cost of downtime during the installation process. Depending on the length and complexity of the installation, you may lose precious scanning time which could cost you the business of your patients and referring physicians. There's also the high cost of retraining your MRI technologists on a brand new system and coils. Finally, there are the larger overhead costs of running a higher powered magnet that will decrease your gross profit marginss.
Refurbished Coils Can Help You Earn More
Refurbished coils can not only help you avoid all the costs of upgrading your system, they cost less upfront than buying brand new coils. So not only will you be able to extend the life of your current MRI system, you'll also be able to expand your coil suite with less investment to give you more imaging options. With a larger coil suite, you can increase your business, get more referrals, and earn more money.
The Cost Benefits Of Refurbished Vs. Used MRI Coils
Refurbished coils are a superior option to the used MRI coils on the market. All of coils at MRICoilsRUs are not only repaired to "like new" condition, many of them have substantial engineering improvements to overcome original design failures. When you purchase a refurbished coil from MRICoilsRUs, it is essentially like buying a brand new coil but for a lot less. Plus, with our great purchasing, warranty, and repair options, you'll be investing in the long term success of your operations and not just simply buying a new piece of equipment.
