I have installed a new DR (Digital) suite in the last 6 months. Over all everything has gone well. Cost for full digital instal is 65K. If your room is not already leaded this will run you an additional 10-15k depending on the shielding plan. If you are interested in older CR you can probably get a system for around 55-60k. However, I would be careful about installing CR as medicare reimbursements will only reimburse DR starting in 2019 or 2020 if you plan on billing a 3rd party for x-rays. If you are not billing 3rd party, then it doesn’t matter unless you have high volume, which DR is capable of doing more X-rays per day.
My cost per read is 10$ If you get quoted more I can give you the large Tele Rad firm I work with. They are quick with reads in as little as minutes to 2 hours on routine films.
There are many options with Sieman’s, Blueridge and others. Choices depend on needs.
