In private institutions, imaging study prices vary for two reasons: the first depends on the area of ​​the body in which the patient deserves the analysis; The second is due to the type of examination, i.e. whether it is worth a variance or not. The latter is a special dye that is given intravenously so that the radiologist can better monitor the specific area to be studied.

In some clinics, costs range from 80 to 300 dollars. Likewise, it requires an order from the doctor so that she can provide more details about the study, and if a contrast is needed, the patient must have laboratory tests for urea and creatinine no later than 30 days after they are performed.
