FONAR owns the patent on the only UPRIGHT MRI unit available in the world. The President of the company, RAYMOND V. DAMADIAN, owns the original patent on the MRI that is used for medical purposes today, and he received a medal, awarded by President George H. W. Bush for his invention which has revolutionized medicine.


Now, Dr. Damadian has reinvented his MRI with the invention of the UPRIGHT MRI, the only true "OPEN MRI" on the market. Other OPEN MRIs are really closed MRIs with a larger "hole" for the patient. However, the UPRIGHT MRI is completely open, and patients have nothing in front of them during their MRI examination. This is extremely beneficial to claustrophobic and larger patients, who cannot have standard (or even OPEN) MRI examinations.


What is ALSO of benefit is that the UPRIGHT MRI demonstrates more pathology than other MRIs in the field of evaluation spinal disc disease. Since many patients only have pain when they are in the UPRIGHT POSITION, this new MRI unit allows patients to be evaluated in ANY position - including the position where patients feel their pain the most. It doesn't make sense to evaluate the patient in the lying down position if that is the only position where they don't feel pain. 


It has been proven that imaging patients in the UPRIGHT POSITION (also known as the "weight bearing position") demonstrates more pathology when it comes to the evaluation of the spine. Also, the multiple positions allow you to evaluate the spine when the patient is bending forward and backwards (known as FLEXION and EXTENSION) to determine if there is even MORE disc disease that has been missed.


Icehockey Player with Posttraumatic Transient Spinal Cord Injury (TSCI)













 Pictures of a 28- year old hockey player who experienced sudden quadraparesis ( = weakness in all 4 limbs). The initial MRI dmonstrates mild disease - but using flexion and extension imaging, it is seen that their is a herniated disc at C3-C4 which increases in size in extension. This is called FLUCTUATING DISC DISEASE AND FLUCTUATING SPINAL STENOSIS WHICH WORSENS IN THE EXTENDED POSITION. It is not possible to find this diagnosis on standard MRI!



Standard Supine          UPRIGHT MRI


 FONAR - Stand-Up (TM) Case Study

Here is a patient who has a herniated disc at L5-S1. It was totally missed on a standard MRI, which is done with the patient laying down (SUPINE). This second image demonstrates the obvious disc herniation - but it ONLY HERNIATIONS when the patient is upright! Without an upright MRI, this diagnosis will be missed.


RAYMOND DAMADIAN RECEIVED THE "INVENTOR OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR 2007" for his invention of the UPRIGHT MRI by the Intellectual Property Owners Assoc.
