User Fees for Research Imagers

User fees for the research imagers are calculated to cover all operating and maintenance costs of the instruments and related Core expenses. These rates are determined and periodically reviewed by the Martinos Center and MGH Research Administration, and adjusted to reflect the actual costs.

User fees include technical support for operation of imaging equipment during regular weekday hours. Technical support for after-hours scanning can be arranged.

Please note: Due to a revision in Partners Policy, the Martinos Center will now be including the costs of institutional overhead in addition to the user fees it charges to external (i.e., non-Partners HealthCare System) customers. To find the rate for external users, please multiply the rates listed below by 1.44 for non-profit and 1.59 for industry.
