Real-world Ultrasound Equipment Prices from BuyerZone Buyers
We regularly survey BuyerZone users to find out how much they paid for their purchases. Here's a look at the prices they've paid recently for ultrasound machines.
You can save money by purchasing a used ultrasound machine, but make sure you test it in person before you buy.
The responses below include a mix of new and refurbished or used ultrasounds. If you don't need the absolute latest and greatest technology, buying used is a great way to save money, as long you take some precautions. Always buy from a qualified medical equipment vendor - not from individuals or unrelated businesses. The "bargains" you're looking for can easily turn into major headaches if you don't at least a 90 day warranty on your purchase.
Second, make sure the model you choose is compatible with the exact procedures and accessories you want to use. Just because a transducer you already own was made by the same company as your new ultrasound machine is no guarantee that they'll work together.
Finally, keep in mind that an ultrasound machine will help pay for itself in exam costs. While it can easily cost $20,000 for a new machine, urology, ob/gyn, and other types of practices where they get a lot of use will find that those costs can be recouped fairly quickly.
