In Canada, it generally costs around $1000 or so. However, some insurance providers do cover the cost, so please ask yours.

The costs will vary considerably across the country and from MRI center to center. It will probably run you $1000-$2000.

Now do not  quote me, but I think in NYC they probably run between $1-2000 for a study of the breasts.

We have made arrangements with some private facilities that will perform these for as little as $400-500. However, newer technologies with higher strength Tesla magnets may cost more, When billed to thrid party insurance companies, some facilities will charge in the range of $3000.

This cost will most likely vary depending on where you live and from one imaging center to another. In Las Vegas I've seen quotes for just under $1,000 to $1,800. Although these prices may change as time goes on with more women having breast MRI, you might contact local imaging centers and get a quote. Best of luck.

Hi Jessy 85. It varies depending on your location. For example, in New York City it costs about $2100 and on Long Island it costs about $1500. Call a radiology facility in your area and ask them how much a bilateral breast MRI costs. If your surgeon has ordered a breast MRI to determine if your silicone implants are leaking, some insurance companies will cover the cost. You can call your insurance company and find out the answer to this. Keep in mind that insurance companies can sometimes arbitrarily change what they will cover. So just because they say they will cover it now, they may not cover it in the future. Also, discuss with your plastic surgeon what you will do if your silicone implants leak, so you know ahead of time what you are committing to. Hope this helps.
