MRI Facility General Policies

  • Refer to the ASRC MRIF Rules of Conduct and Use (coming soon)
  • Bonus Hours
    • CUNY PIs will receive 10 percent of their billed hours as “bonus” hours. These can be used to offset fees for cancelled scans, reserve time for technical development or pilot scans, and to reserve time for ongoing approved MRI studies.  Bonus hours must be used by July 1st of each year, after which point each PI’s total bonus hours are reset to zero.
  • Cancelled Scans
    • Scans cancelled within 3 days of the reserved time are subject to a $100 fee per hour of reserved time.
  • Billing
    • Billing cycles begin at the 1st of each month and end on the last day of that month. PI’s or their designated personnel receive MRI bills at the beginning of the month and balances are due the 22nd of each month.  Accounts delinquent more than 3 months will result in suspension of scanning privileges until account balances are resolved.
