Large NY Radiology Group Buys Two FONAR UPRIGHT Multi-Position MRIs

January 19, 2009- FONAR Corp. said today that it has sold two UPRIGHT Multi-Position MRI scanners to Doshi Diagnostic Imaging Services, P.C., which is among the country's largest privately held multi-modality imaging companies as well as the largest radiology group in New York.

"The FONAR UPRIGHT Multi-Position MRI is a perfect complement to existing closed high field and open low field magnets already in our system,” said Leena Doshi, M.D., president of Doshi Diagnostic. “Gravity and position can impact a patient's anatomy, so as the body changes from lying down to being upright, so will the MRI images. Aside from it being a general all-purpose MRI producing high-quality images, the UPRIGHT MRI will be useful in any condition where the weight-bearing image is relevant, such as spine, ankle, knee and hip. The UPRIGHT MRI will also be invaluable in helping the diagnosis of women with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD), the common symptom complex in women responsible for urinary incontinence, chronic cystitis, uterine and rectal prolapse. The UPRIGHT Multi-Position MRI will allow us to perform a thorough evaluation of patients experiencing such problems."
