Mri scan cost in us

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan cost in us


Avatar f tn Is it necessary to have more than one MRI scan done. I have only ever had the one scan, 15 yrs ago which was when I was given my official dx, despite having several episodes/relapses since. Initially told I had RRMS now being told I have SPMS with relapses.
Avatar m tn they opted not to treat his hepc and cirrhosis. They said the lesion was irregular.
Avatar n tn As the CT scan report was normal and since there was no MRI scan facility in the hospital the patient was not shifted immediately to another one. The doctor of the hospital to which he was later admitted mentioned about the delay. that is why i felt so. Do you think that the CT scan report which mentioned "brain-stem normal" was correct?
Avatar m tn ) I was receiving two CT scans per year and thankfully that was reduced, but I would certainly prefer the MRI in place of the US . At least they do use Doppler which yields other useful data. I will certainly inquire about although I have a hunch insurance may be involved somehow.
1218873 tn?1300091216 But over the past 12 months I have started to learn a bit of what thing cost, and it appears that even if you go private they are considerabley cheaper than in the US which to me dosen't seem quite right. In the Uk it is only a tiny percentage of people go private and even if you do, if you are suffering a long term illness you tend to be pushed over to the NHS as they have the specialists and equipment.
Avatar m tn I had an MRI of the brain back in May, to investigate various cognitive / neurological problems I've been experiencing since the start of 2009 (mild confusion, memory problems, muscle twitching, etc). This came back normal (I have neither copies of the scans , nor the radiographers report - just a letter from neurologist saying all findings were normal).
405614 tn?1329144114 Im in Indiana & know that MRI's can cost any where from $300 to $5000. It depends what all they are going to scan (head, neck, back), if they will be useing contrast, & if it is reg MRI or wide open. If insurence is an issue, talk to neuro about it, sometimes they will re-duce the cost. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn Hi guys I wanted to know if anyone knows where to get a private head MRI scan done in the Birmingham region. I've been suffering from this head related illness for almost 2 years and the doctor thinks it's depression which I disagree because the only thing that gets me depressed is the problem itself I'm suffering from.
Avatar n tn my wife had a mri scan on her neck the result came back as follows mri on the C- spine showd minor degenerative changes with a normal spinal cord there disc lesion at C6/C7 which corrugates the postrior longitudinal ligament by the spinal cord .
Avatar n tn An ultrasound and an uptake scan are different tests. :o) Didn't know FNA's were so expensive though...ouch.
Avatar f tn go. if your in the us then Google the American institute of medical technology and it will cost around 50 bucks.
Avatar f tn How long does it take to get an MRI done and read to finished report in the U.S. ? Cost? Overseas? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
987762 tn?1331027953 The MRI The purpose of a MRI or magnetic resonance imaging machine, is to harmlessly work out what internally is physically wrong with you, without involving exploratory surgery. MRIs have 3 types: conventional, open bore and fully open. In an conventional MRI, a long toroidal (Doughnut-shaped) electromagnet supplies the electromagnetic force, and the subject is put through a long 'tunnel', where a full-body scan is supplied.
Avatar f tn Other than cost, is there a reason I should have a CT scan instead of an MRI? I would rather not have the radiation exposure of a CT scan if an MRI will produce adequate data. Thank you!
900662 tn?1469390305 (my head is a bit fuzzy, so sorry if I'm not talking about the correct topic!) I think insurance coverage has a lot to do with the regulations in your state. Some states have far fewer requirements placed on insurance companies then others. I'm lucky enough to live in NY State, which has a good amount of requirements. Three years ago I never would have known how lucky I am. My DH worked at a top National Bank for 10 years, in the mortgage division.
798555 tn?1292787551 For many of us that still have a thyroid, Ultrasound is the 'big cost' of our thyroid disease every 18 months. And it is lower than most insurance deductibles noways, with means we pay for it, up front. I'm guessing the cash price for that ranges from $550 to $900 in the US. If you dont shop around, its time to start. So, what was the cost for your Ultrasound last time? Interesting to see prices in different parts of the country.
1052221 tn?1253876315 Meant MRI. Also make sure you have your Vit. D levels checked. They are notoriously low in cancer patients and this is not good.
567677 tn?1246767776 One more thought about the cost - did they give you a price for the MRI test? See if you can get that negotiated rate like they do with the big insurance companies. I'm with Anthem and it seems to me they only pay about 20-25% of the rate that is billed for my MRI's. It would be great if you could get this worked out too.
Avatar f tn It was only at the beginning of this year that I decided to see my GP about it, it was very emotional for me to discuss but she advised me to have some blood tests and a MRI scan, which I did. I initially thought these could be absence seizures but they were ruled out when the MRI scan came back normal and the blood tests were fine, revealing only that I had a thyroid issue. The GP has recommended I see a Neurologist but am afraid of what it could be. I just want to stop zoning out.
