MELVILLE, N.Y., Nov. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FONAR Corporation (NASDAQ:FONR), The Inventor of MR Scanning™, reported today its first quarter fiscal 2018 results for the quarter ended September 30, 2017. 

FONAR’s primary source of income is derived from its subsidiary’s (Health Management Company of America) management of 26 MRI centers of which 24 feature the FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI, aka Stand-Up® MRI. 

The FONAR MRI scans patients in numerous positions, including standing, sitting, in flexion and extension, as well as in the conventional lie-down position.  It is the only MRI that scans patients in weight-bearing positions, which enables it to detect patient problems missed by or underestimated by conventional lie-down-only scanners.  With most patients scanned in a seated position watching TV, and with a near-zero claustrophobic patient rejection rate, the FONAR scanner is by far today’s most patient–friendly MRI.

To accommodate the high demand for the UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI, the HMCA-managed MRI center in Bronx, New York, last month became the first FONAR center to install a second UPRIGHT MRI at the same location.

FONAR’s extensive patent portfolio includes recently issued patents for its technology for visualizing and quantifying the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in all the normal positions of the human body, particularly in its upright flow against gravity. CSF circulates throughout the brain and vertebral column at the rate of 32 quarts per day. Imaging and quantifying the dynamics of this vital life-sustaining physiology of the body’s neurologic system has been made possible by FONAR’s introduction of the MRI.

Significant Events

On July 3, 2017, FONAR acknowledged the 40th anniversary of the world’s first whole-body MRI scan, the event that marked the birth of the MRI industry.  This remarkable achievement was accomplished by FONAR founder Raymond Damadian, M.D., with the assistance of graduate-students Larry Minkoff and Michael Goldsmith. 

First quarter Fiscal 2018 was the first complete quarter in which FONAR stock was included in the Russell 3000® Index, having joined the index effective June 26, 2017.  The Company has since seen an increase in related index funds and ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds), mutual funds, and institutional owners. Currently, Institutional ownership currently is 44.3%, and mutual fund ownership is 13.6%, of Fonar's outstanding Common Stock."

Management Discussion

Timothy R. Damadian, President and CEO, said, “Of course we’re very pleased with the first quarter results, especially our growth in revenue and net income. Much of the credit goes to my management team that consistently keeps the company on a very positive growth trajectory.”      

Raymond V. Damadian, M.D. Chairman of the Board of FONAR Corporation, added, “Given that reimbursement rates for independent MRI providers continue to fall year after year, HMCA’s performance is truly remarkable.  I attribute it to good management, unwavering adherence to a now-proven business plan, and the enormous appeal and effectiveness the UPRIGHT® MRI.”

About FONAR

FONAR, The Inventor of MR Scanning™, located in Melville, NY, was incorporated in 1978 and is the first, oldest and most experienced MRI company in the industry. FONAR introduced the world's first commercial MRI in 1980, and went public in 1981. FONAR's signature product is the FONAR UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI (also known as the STAND-UP® MRI), the only whole-body MRI that performs Position™ imaging (pMRI™) and scans patients in numerous weight-bearing positions, i.e. standing, sitting, in flexion and extension, as well as in the conventional lie-down position. The FONAR UPRIGHT® MRI often detects patient problems that other MRI scanners cannot because they are lie-down and "weightless-only" scanners. The patient-friendly UPRIGHT® MRI has a near-zero claustrophobic rejection rate by patients. Regarding patient comfort, as one FONAR customer stated, "If the patient is claustrophobic in this scanner, they'll be claustrophobic in my parking lot." Approximately 85% of patients are scanned sitting while watching TV.

FONAR has new works-in-progress technology for visualizing and quantifying the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) which circulates throughout the brain and vertebral column at the rate of 32 quarts per day. This imaging and quantifying of the dynamics of this vital life-sustaining physiology of the body’s neurologic system has been made possible first by FONAR’s introduction of the MRI and now by this latest works-in-progress method for quantifying CSF flow in all the normal positions of the body, particularly in its upright flow against gravity. Patients with whiplash or other neck injuries as well as patients with childhood autism, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Scherosis (Lou Gehrig's disease), Parkinson's disease and dementia are among those who FONAR believes are likely to benefit from this new understanding of CSF flow physiology.

FONAR’s substantial list of patents includes recent patents for its technology enabling full weight-bearing MRI imaging of all the gravity sensitive regions of the human anatomy, especially the brain, extremities and spine. FONAR’s UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI is the only scanner licensed under these patents.
