Buy Used Medical Equipment – MRI


Are you looking for an MRI scanner?

Getting the newest possible version might not be the right solution. We help you find the right system for your need and your patients. Because buying an MRI scanner is about getting the right equipment for the job. In many cases buying a used MRI scanner is the perfect balance between functionality and price. It’s really a question about need to have and nice to have.


Can’t find what you are looking for today? Many systems get sold before we have a chance to post them online, but we always have new diagnostic imaging systems in the pipeline.

What makes a system the right system depends on you and what the needs are. 


The needs are determined by a number of things. 

Where you are located. 

How many years do you plan to use the MRI?

What type of patients do you have and how many patients you expect to have a day? 

The list is long. 

Your budget is also something to take into consideration. 


Buying a MRI is both a big decision and a complicated project. 

As such it is of utmost importance that you not only consider what you can afford in the short term. 

You also need to consider the Total Cost of Ownership during the equipment’s lifespan. This includes buying it, shipping,  preparation of the site, installation, service contract, spare parts and more. 


You might get surprised by how much more you can get for your money when you choose to buy used diagnostic imaging equipment. 

But do be careful and only buy fully tested equipment. The bitterness of poor quality remains long after forgetting the sweetness of low prices.


If you need help to assess your needs, we are always ready to help you. You can also read this blog post on the subject. On top of this, you may also find answers in our FAQ.


Keep in mind that we also can assist you with a turnkey solution. A turnkey solution typically includes:

  • Warranty
  • Installation
  • Site Planning
  • After-Sales Service.
