Fonar secures second Upright contract with imaging center
The Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) of Minneapolis has purchased a second Fonar Upright Multi-Position MRI, in partnership with the Northwestern College of Chiropractic (NWHSU). The sale was placed jointly with GE Healthcare, a manufacturer’s representative of Fonar.

The company currently owns and operates 42 diagnostic imaging centers in eight states, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Washington and Florida.

The first Upright MRI scanner was installed at a CDI Minneapolis outpatient center in the west metro suburb of St. Louis Park in June 2007.

“We’ve purchased a second Fonar Upright Multi-Position MRI to go into one of our Woodbury outpatient centers in the east metro area,” said Robert Baumgartner, CEO of CDI. “Our ongoing collaboration with NWHSU follows our commitment to provide access to the most comprehensive imaging services for clinicians and patients to meet their unique imaging needs.”
