What are the rates and rules for imaging?

The MRI Scanning fee is $500 per hour for all persons associated with the University of Wisconsin System and its associates.  There is a minimum one hour charge for all scans.  Additional time in the same session is billed in half hour increments. 

A Radiology fee of $50 is charged for all over reads.

 Our policy is that once placed on the schedule any time slot cancelled inside of a week before the specific time will be charged for the entire scan fee unless another investigator utilizes that scan time.

Once you have received approval from the IRB for your protocol complete the MRI Research Application and submit it along with your approved protocol to Ginny Hayes, MRI lab manager.  She will organize a MRI Users Committee meeting and notify you by letter of approval for MRI use.  *If you are needing time on the scanner for pilot/testing to evaluate a technique for your protocol or grant for MRI funded studies please contanct the lab manager for pilot scanning approval.
