The Bottom Line
: These MRI systems are the BIG BOYS and will provide such a great enhancement to any facility. Pricing for these units are similar, however, warranties can vary depending on your facility’s location and your provider’s desire to expand their territory. What needs to be considered is the availability of parts after the warranty expires. None the less, both of these 3T MRI systems are so similar in their basic operations; it will only come down to pricing and extended warranty support.
