Area Hospital Imaging Costs VS. IMI – old


All medical imaging prices are not created equal. When choosing your imaging provider, it’s important to know that there can be significant differences in cost, depending on where your exam is performed.

For over 20 years, Intermountain Medical Imaging has provided excellence in service quality and patient experience—at significantly lower costs than average local hospitals.

Here are a few examples of how our rates compare to those at area hospitals:



(pricing DOES NOT include the radiologist reading fee)


(pricing INCLUDES the radiologist reading fee)

Chest X-ray, 2-view$198$70
CT; chest w/contrast$2,043$750 – $800

Ultrasound; Abdomen$461$379

MRI Brain w/o contrast$1,795$1,400

*local hospital charges are based on data gathered during the month of October 2018. IMI data is based on the same charges during the same time frame.


At IMI, we believe that patients should never have to sacrifice quality for cost savings. Here are a few ways we ensure that remains true:

  • Accuracy: Before performing your imaging procedure, our board-certified, fellowship-trained radiologists will review your case to ensure that the ordered test is the most precise available for your listed indications.
  • Answers: IMI will make your imaging test results available for your health care provider to review within 24 to 48 hours of your exam’s completion.
  • Accolades: Over 90 percent of our patients report that they would recommend IMI to their family and friends.
  • Appointment flexibility: With three area outpatient locations—all offering a wide range of appointment times—we help our patients incorporate their imaging procedures into their schedules, not ours.
