Not sure this is the appropriate forum, but anyway...

Could anyone get me a price for an MRI scan on the right knee? Obviously at a reputable private hospital, in any of the following cities:

Chennai
Bangalore
Hyderabad
Kochi
Kolkata

Thanks!

Not sure if this is right. I think it may be double what raveann says. Normally the referring doctor gets a kickback.

At Kolkata...it will cost around Rs. 6000/-
The rates may vary but not more or less than 10%

If it is what I think it is, then the its costs around 6k in Delhi too.

There are certain places that would be do in around 2.5K, depending on the type of machines they have.

Cost of MRI SCAN varies depending upon several factors like

locality/region of the center
body part to be examined
need for contrast/dye injection
local competition in the region


We cannot price them according to city basis.It depends on the Hospitals or the imaging centres.India is however the cheapest option for performing MRI SCAN compared to majority of the countries in the world. The average cost of MRI SCAN(Knee) in India should be about Rs.4000 - Rs.7000. You might be charged a bit extra in the metropolitan cities however.

For Kochin Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre Edapally is best and economical.

Thanks for all of the helpful replies. Do you have to have a referring doctor? My doc from home has told me what to tell the radiologist.

I think Sri Lanka (where I am at the moment) may be marginally cheaper than India on this score.

You can just walk into a private lab/scanning/x-ray facility. They are likely to have a duty doctor. Especially if you have a note from your own doc, I'm sure they will arrange the scan for you.
