How much does it cost to CT scan a work of art?


 

A  screening  CT scan done in Brussels costs 500 Euros paid in advance by bank transfer (+VAT).

 

The cost of a  diagnostic  CT scan is much higher as it included the production of a detailed and fully illustrated radiological report. Its precise cost depends on:

  • the size of the piece,
  • the location of the CT scanner,
  • the degree of urgency. 

As an example, here is the full radiological report (PDF) regarding the CT scan and analysis in Brussels of a (fake) Han Dynasty Dancer.

 

Its cost was EUR 2.000, all included.
