Fonar Corporation (Fonar) has sold two UPRIGHT Multi-Position MRI scanners to Doshi Diagnostic Imaging Services, P.C. (Doshi Diagnostic), which is among the country’s privately held multi-modality imaging companies as well as the radiology group in New York. Doshi Diagnostic is headquartered in Bethpage, Long Island, and operates about 40 centers in Florida, New Jersey, Long Island, and New York City.

Leena Doshi, president of Doshi Diagnostic said, “We are always looking for the latest and best technology in radiology. The FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI is a perfect compliment to existing closed high field and open low field magnets already in our system. 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.”

Raymond Damadian, founder and president of FONAR, commented, “Doshi Diagnostic is committed to providing state-of-the-art imaging services, using the most advanced technology.
