, archaic, tunnel-type scanner with a strong magnet and better quality images. FONAR has solved this technological puzzle with the introduction of the QUAD 12000 high-field, open scanner. The best of both MRI worlds is now a technological reality.

At .6 Tesla, the field strength of the QUAD 12000 is at least twice that of any other open system on the market today. In fact, some of the big names in the industry have yet to bring any type of open scanner to the market, and some of the open scanners that have been recently introduced are as little as one-third the field strength of FONAR's new scanner.

 company officials, now that the first QUAD 12000 is fully installed, sales of this revolutionary scanner are expected to be brisk. In fact, the company is reporting that U.S. buyers are more interested in the QUAD 12000 than in any of their other products. FONAR's new distributor network, which brings about 200 salespeople to FONAR, is excited to have the only high-field, open MRI scanner on the market. Buyers are excited that this major MRI technological advance is now a reality.

Attractively priced, FONAR has the least expensive and its innovative design, manufacturing costs are lower and maintenance costs for open scanners are many thousands of dollars less than tunnel-type scanners. The QUAD 12000, with its superior image quality and unusually open environment, will also help support other important MRI advances, such as MRI-guided surgery. -0-
