Better late than never. MRI developer Fonar of Melville, NY, lastweek lauded the installation of its first Quad 12000 MRI scanner,which was placed at South Shore MRI in Amityville, NY. While theinstallation is a milestone for Fonar, it comes over three yearsafter Fonar first announced its work on the Quad 12000 systemin late 1993 (SCAN 10/6/93). The scanner received 510(k) clearancein November 1995.

Now that Quad 12000 is shipping, Fonar expects sales of the magnetto be brisk. The company has high expectations in particular forits distribution relationship with National Imaging Resources,which has 200 salespeople available to sell the scanners.
