MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, is a type of diagnostic radiology scan that may be useful in screening for disease.
Unlike X-ray and CT scans, an MRI doesn’t require the use of harmful radiation. Instead, an MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to generate high-quality images that may detail changes in tissues earlier than other tests.
Early detection leads to early intervention, potentially better outcomes, and maybe even beating aggressive diseases like cancer altogether.
Perhaps you’re interested in learning more about your body and whether you can use data to quantify healthiness and inform your healthcare decisions.
If so, you may be considering getting a full-body scan. If so, at the top of your list of questions is likely, “How much does a full-body MRI cost?”
The cost of an MRI can vary broadly depending on the part of the body you’re having scanned and the market in which you’re located.
More variables include the cost of your initial doctor’s visit and fees for the radiologist to read and interpret your scans. If you have insurance, costs vary further depending on the type of coverage, plus out-of-pocket expenses like deductibles and copays.
The type of technology used factors heavily into the pricing scheme, as well as other overhead expenses like salaries, training, office space, utilities, and more. MRI machines are expensive.
A lower-end used MRI scanner can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, whereas a state-of-the-art 3T MRI machine, used at Ezra partner facilities, can cost as much as $3 million.
Your personal costs, like those associated with the time and energy it takes to keep up with multiple appointments to see your primary practitioner—plus any referrals your health insurance may require—are another consideration.
Since whole-body MRI is a new type of screening test, it can be difficult to answer the question, “How much does a full-body MRI cost?” But Imaging Technology News offers some pricing points of reference.
An MRI of the pelvis can cost up to $7,900, an MRI of the abdomen can cost as much as $7,600, and an MRI of the brain can cost up to $8,400.
MRIs are one of the most expensive diagnostic tests used in medicine today.
Sure, health insurance may help cover the high price, but what if you have a high-deductible plan? What if you don’t have health insurance at all?

To improve access to care, Ezra partners with the most highly respected imaging centers across the United States.
Our partner facilities utilize the latest technology, such as large-bore 3T MRI scanners that produce higher-quality images than open MRI, yet are less likely to trigger MRI anxiety and claustrophobia than traditional close-bore MRI machines.
Ezra is growing! We currently have partner facilities in the following markets:
