Modern healthcare is a pain.
We’re here to treat it.

Healthcare is expensive, confusing and incredibly inconvenient. And we’re going to change that. We’re a group of industry veterans that want to put the “care” back in “healthcare.” That means we’re putting the patient first—offering high quality MRI scans and expert results at an accessible price, all while keeping our patients comfortable. With Smart Choice MRI, we’re not just reinventing healthcare, we’re redefining it.

Innovative

Founded in 2006, we are the first MRI Center in the country built around offering high quality, low cost MRI scans to the public.

High Quality

Smart Choice MRI brings together leading GE MRI technology for a fair and transparent rate.

Experienced

Our board-certified radiologists at the Cleveland Clinic provide our patients the most accurate diagnosis possible.

Affordable

With a cost of $600 or less for each scan and flexible payment options, we make getting an MRI accessible to everyone.

Our Partners

Providing quality care at an accessible cost wouldn’t be possible without our partners, GE and the Cleveland Clinic. GE provides transformational medical technologies and services that are shaping a new age of patient care. We proudly use advanced GE Magnetic Resonance Imaging technology to generate the highest quality scans possible. Those scans are then interpreted by radiologists from the Cleveland Clinic, a nonprofit, multispecialty academic medical center and one of the most respected hospitals in the country.
