FONAR nets Australia Upright MRI install
FONAR has expanded its international reach with a sale of its Upright Multi-Position MRI to a group medical practice in Australia.

Raymond Damadian, president and founder of the Melville, N.Y.-based FONAR said that many patients come to Australia just to be scanned on the Upright. “A scan performed while the patient is lying down simply doesn’t allow physicians to see the patient’s spine and other extremities in the positions in which the patient experiences pain,” the company said.

FONAR said it expects to install the newly sold MRI during the current calendar year.
