This guide will outline various parameters to consider when evaluating the prices of ultrasound machines. It is meant to help you make the best decision when acquiring these fairly expensive machines.

Factors that Determine the Prices of Ultrasound Machines in Kenya

Condition/Age of the Machine

For most health equipment, the age usually determines its price. New and demo systems usually cost more than refurbished ultrasound machines. Consequently, the refurbished (renewed) machines cost more than used ones.

This is because the used machines and refurbished machines are likely to have undergone some form of wear and tear from previous users. However, well inspected and maintained used machines usually perform almost as good as new ones.

It is good to note that the age is not a big issue for refurbished systems as they are updated in the refurbishment process including software. Age is important when dealing with used systems where it is recommended to go for a machine that is not more than 5 years old. Medistus Limited (based in Nairobi) offers both new and used units at different prices which you can view here.

Size of the Ultrasound Machine

Ultrasound machines usually come in two major sizes which portable (pocket-sized) and standard. Portable ultrasound machines such as Mindray DP-10 are very ideal for carrying around, quick assessments and general practice since their sizes are similar to a large laptop. This category of ultrasound machines is usually very affordable and can be as low as Ksh. 320,000. You can check the current price of Mindray DP-10 Ultrasound here.

Larger sized machines such as Mindray Resona 7 are a bit bulky and thus not very easy to move around. However, they offer more functionalities such as Cardiac Imaging and also tend to cost more.

Tier (and Prices)

The new, used, and OEM refurbished ultrasound machines lie in 3 categories which are high-tier, mid-tier, and low-tier systems.

Other Factors that Affect the Cost of Ultrasound Machines

The other factors include delivery, setup, application training, and maintenance. Learning how to operate this piece of expensive equipment on the patients can cost the user. Different types of machines require different levels of skills.

Maintenance, which is also known as service contract, is an arrangement that covers a piece of equipment in case it malfunctions. Maintenance packages include Parts Only, Time and Material, and Full-Service agreements. A Parts Only arrangement includes preventative maintenance (PM) as well as all the parts required to repair the ultrasound machine but the labour is charged differently.

The time and material arrangement includes one preventative maintenance per year at a pre-agreed rate for the servicing while the parts are sold at the prevailing market prices. A full-service agreement covers all the parts and labour related to servicing the machine including PM.

The maintenance cost is directly proportional to the type of machine and service level. A basic Time and Material arrangement including preventative maintenance can start somewhere from Ksh. 150,000 for a whole year while a Full Parts and Labour on a high-tier ultrasound machine can cost about Ksh. 1.5M per year.

On average, the maintenance cost is usually 10-15% of the purchase price. Thus, it is very important to keep in mind when evaluating the cost of ultrasound machine in Kenya.

How to Determine How Much to Spend on an Ultrasound Machine

It is highly recommended to always consider ones need and budget. It is good to keep in mind that low-tier ultrasound machines are less advanced and ideal for basic needs especially in smaller clinics.

Mid-tier machines have better options and recommended for radiology and bigger health facilities. High-tier ultrasound machines have advanced options for specialized settings and thus highly recommended for top facilities such as level 5 hospitals.

DC60 X-Insight color ultrasound machineIf you have been thinking about acquiring a new machine, consider a refurbished one first. If you wanted to buy refurbished machine, look into a used system first. This enables one to optimize the value for their money, reserve some money for maintenance (and related costs), and one has the chance to upgrade in the future.

A good example is where one had considered a mid-tier system worth Ksh. 5M. For the same price, one can acquire a good quality high-tier system with more functionalities especially for machines made in Philippines.
