Why Advanced Patient Imaging?

Advanced Patient Imaging has a new vision for the delivery of medical imaging in the emerging healthcare market of the 21st century.  Our goal is straightforward.  We have a genuine desire to deliver the best medical imaging services, at the lowest cost, without losing focus on the patient.


Healthcare costs have risen dramatically over the last several years and we understand the burden this places on the average family.  By developing a business model with a strong emphasis on low overhead cost, we are able to pass on a significant savings to everyone regardless if they are uninsured or have insurance coverage.

Medical Imaging Costs

Charges for a single MRI exam vary widely across the country.  Currently, the average cost for an MRI nationwide is around $2,400.  This price rarely includes the radiology report fee, which increases the overall price on average of $265 per exam.  Many hospitals and outpatient diagnostic centers can charge whatever they want, and in most cases they don’t have to justify prices or even disclose them ahead of time.


Additionally, many insurance policies only cover medical imaging up to 50%, which means your out-of-pocket cost can still be substantial. If you use an HSA or are uninsured, you’re using your own money to pay for services… so getting the most affordable care is important.  At Advanced Patient Imaging our prices are all inclusive with no hidden fees.  You always know your out-of-pocket expenses before the procedure.


Any MRI Exam - $395.00

Only Advanced Patient Imaging offers a fixed, all inclusive price of $395.00 for any MRI exam.  This price includes the scan, contrast (if ordered), a copy of your exam on a CD-ROM and professional interpretation from a board-certified radiologist within 24 hours.

Real Savings for Patients

Since the Affordable Healthcare Act implementation, there has been a lot of confusion as people try to understand the actual cost of their  new premiums and deductibles. Private health insurance companies’ responses have only added more confusion to the situation. 

Sadly, many individuals and families are experiencing a drastic increase to their out-of-pocket expenses related to out of control healthcare cost.
