medical MRI cost

So I messed my shoulder up at the gym and I am about certain that I have a tear. I plan to go to the hospital on Saturday for Xrays and an MRI. However, I was told by some teachers in Busan that MRI's arent covered by insurance? Has anyone had them done and have any idea what the cost is?

Re: medical MRI cost

The cost of an MRI may vary from 350,000 to 560,000 depending on whether it is 1.5T or 3.0T images and depending on the tier rating of the hospital.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call me at 010-9457-8941.

Thank you.

Re: medical MRI cost

Hello, I am nurse Lee at Dongeui Medical Center.

This is the information provided by our MRI dept.

1. The open MRI is an old version of MRI and not as effective as the closed model.

    It is HARD to find the open MRI in Busan.

2. For an MRI of your knee, your head will not be inside the tunnel.
