FONAR Corporation (NASDAQ:FONR) announced it has sold an UPRIGHT® Multi-Position? MRI to Bakersfield UPRIGHT MRI Center, Bakersfield, CA. Hoorman M. Melamed, MD, FAOOS, a board certified orthopaedic spine surgeon and a principal at the Bakersfield UPRIGHT MRI Center, said, "Selection of the FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position? MRI for our group was a very careful and deliberate decision. We recognize that the UPRIGHT® MRI offers capabilities beyond that of a recumbent-only MRI. The UPRIGHT® MRI allows for scanning patients weight-bearing and the dynamic positions of flexion and extension. This allows us to see and evaluate the spine under load of a patient's pathology thus enabling us to avoid under estimating a patient's pathology and therefore obtaining a better diagnosis."
FONAR Corporation engages in the design, manufacture, sale, and service of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners for the detection and diagnosis of human diseases.
