Unmatched expertise at a significantly lower price.

You should never have to sacrifice treatment quality for a price you can afford. As a patient, your treatment is about your well-being and restoring your way of life—a process that shouldn’t include worry over health care expenses.

So at Shields, we’ve made it our mission to offer both.

Shields’ laser focus on imaging means more efficiency, and that translates into savings for our patients. Hospitals offer multiple service lines with high overhead costs that often filter down into the price for your imaging. As a specialty outpatient provider, our costs are low and our expertise in MRI and PET/CT remains unmatched. It’s a model that grants our patients the peace of mind to focus on what really matters: better health.


Looking for an out-of-pocket price estimate?

  2. Have the MRI scan type or your procedure’s ordering code, also known as a CPT code, including whether or not you need contrast (e.g., elbow MRI with contrast).
