    If so, FONR represents an incredible opportunity at this time.

    The inventor of the MRI has the patent for the world's only Stand Up

    FONAR Sells 53rd Stand-Up MRI and First in New Jersey
    Thursday July 24, 1:01 am ET

    MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 24, 2003--FONAR Corporation
    (NASDAQ-FONR), The MRI Specialist(tm), announced today the sale of its
    53rd FONAR Stand-Up(tm) MRI scanner to Tilton Dynamic Imaging in
    Northfield, New Jersey. It is the Company's first Stand-Up(tm) MRI
    sale in the state of New Jersey.

    Mr. Norman Brettler, M.H.A., administrator for Tilton Dynamic Imaging,
    explained why Tilton chose the Stand-Up(tm) MRI: "Northfield is a very
    competitive market for MRI providers, so the task of selecting an MRI
    had to be done very carefully. Frankly, my first instinct was to go
    with a large multi-product medical device company. But, in order to be
    thorough, we felt we should consider FONAR's Stand-Up(tm) MRI that we
    had heard so much about. We were very impressed with the unique and
    revolutionary diagnostic capabilities of the Stand-Up(tm) MRI,
    particularly for orthopedic applications."

    Mr. Brettler continued: "I have been involved with busy MRI imaging
    businesses for many years. The vast majority of all MRI scans are
    orthopedic related. Because of this, I believe that the weight-bearing
    capabilities of the FONAR's Position Imaging(tm) (pMRI(tm)) scanner
    place it in a position to capture a majority of the MRI scan market.
    Referring physicians will now be able to obtain information that is
    simply unobtainable from other scanners."

    Mr. Brettler explained, "The Stand-Up(tm) MRI allows for the
    visualization of anatomy under normal weight-bearing positions, and it
    allows physicians to evaluate patients' problems with the patients in
    the positions that cause them pain or other symptoms. No other MRI or
    any other type of diagnostic scanner can do that. The Stand-Up(tm) MRI
    is also the most patient-friendly MRI in the world. Patients can watch
    TV while they are being scanned. Considering the demographics of
    southern New Jersey, the medical needs of the community, the unique
    diagnostic capabilities of the Stand-Up, and the enormous appeal of a
    truly Open MRI, the Stand-Up(tm) MRI was clearly the best choice for
    our practice."

    The Stand-Up(tm) MRI will be installed in a 3,000 sq. ft. marble and
    glass building located at 1226 Tilton Road in Northfield, New Jersey,
    which is in the greater Atlantic City area.

    The Stand-Up(tm) MRI, FONAR's Upright(tm) imaging system, is the
    world's only whole-body MRI scanner with the ability to perform
    Position Imaging (tm) (pMRI(tm)), i.e. patients can be scanned
    standing, sitting, bending or lying down. With its unique ability to
    scan patients in weight-bearing postures, the FONAR Stand-Up(tm) MRI
    has identified pathology that had gone undetected on conventional,
    lie-down MRI scanners.

    Because of its unique geometric design, the FONAR Stand-Up(tm) MRI is
    remarkably spacious and non-claustrophobic. There is nothing in front
    of the patients' faces or over their heads to create a "closed-in"
    feeling. Patients typically sit comfortably watching a 42" TV
    throughout the scanning procedure.

    MRI Specialist, Stand-Up, Upright, Position Imaging and PMRI are
    trademarks of FONAR Corporation.

        FONAR has the patent to the world's only Stand Up MRI, which allows
        patients to be scanned in weight bearing positions. Read the comments
        made by the doctors and MRI centers who have been purchasing them.
        And why do you think that it is bargain priced?
        The Stand Up MRI is relatively new, and sales are just beginning to
        take off, and the company is just now returning to profitability.
        While it was down, it had to dilute its shares in order to avoid
        taking on massive debt. This kept it at a very low price. Now that
        sales are coming in, the dilution will end, and the book value of each
        share is bound to increase - along with the share price.

        I like to buy good companies that have been kicked in the balls, and
        are just getting back on their feet. If you look at FONR's finbancial
        history, you will see that even as of March, its losses were
        lessening, and its revenues were increasing. With the influx of sales
        of the 1.5 million dollar machines (which are coming with increased
        frequency), I expect its upcoming reports to be even stronger.

        If you look at its long term weekly chart, you will see that it is
        moving decisively off of a long term base, on increasing volume. This
        is a sign that smart money is accumulating it.

        In my experience, buying a company with solid financials, increasing
        revenues and earnings (or at least rapidly decreasing losses), moving
        up on increasing volume off of a bargain basement price is a winning
        ticket.

        I would be very surprised to see FONR fall from here, and fully expect
        it to at least double or triple within the next year. This is one of
        the best low-priced stock plays I have seen in quite some time.

          No, I'm not a day trader. I like to buy promising low priced stocks
          in solid companies, and sell them after they rise in price. Rarely am
          I in and out of a trade on the same day.

          I personally appreciate it when people give me tips on quality stocks.

          Of course, you should never, ever buy a stock based solely on a tip.
          You must always do your own research, and only invest in things you
          understand.

          I am very grateful to the person who tipped me off to FONR, though.
          Even if you don't buy it, just follow this stock over the next year.
          You will be amazed.

            With all due respect John, I do not think that this stock is bargain
            priced. It is priced at 5x equity with losses. Medical equipment
            business is, in my not very educated opinion, a big racket and hard
            for newcomers to get into. I cannot form an educated guess as to how
            many people need MRI done in load bearing positions either, which is
            the key to figuring out how many of these devices will be bought.

            I am reading their 10-k right now, they are capitalizing a big part of
            their R&D, which I do not like very much. It's just a bad sign.

            Their director is selling shares at 90 cents per share, in miniscule
            amounts.

                You are not allowed to purchase FONR, Doug. You are to sit on the

                Dr. Marks gave his reasons for purchasing FONAR's Stand-Up(TM) MRI:
                "Often, a patient's symptoms manifest only when the patient is in a
                particular position or posture. We have selected the Stand-Up(TM) MRI
                because it is the only scanner that allows us to place the patient in
                whatever position necessary to reproduce the symptom. Once the patient
                is in that position, only then can the MRI show us exactly what is
                causing the problem. Pathology that is undetectable with the patient
                lying down, but evident when the patient is, say, sitting up, can now
                be accurately assessed. For example, what a recumbent MRI might see
                only as a minor bulge, may be an obvious disc protrusion with the
                patient upright. The Stand-Up(TM) MRI allows physicians to
                consistently and confidently determine the best treatment plan for all
                their patients. Our group expects to buy at least two more
                Stand-Up(TM) MRIs for placement in south Dallas and Fort Worth, and
                anticipates the possible need for a second unit in the north Dallas
                location."

                FONAR Sells 46th Stand-Up MRI To Surgeon
                Thursday June 26, 3:16 am ET
                Purchased To Improve Surgical Results

                The MRI Specialist(TM), announced today the sale of its 46th FONAR
                Stand-Up(TM) MRI to Dr. Rahul Nath, MD, a microsurgical reconstructive
                surgeon in the Southwest. The Stand-Up(TM) MRI is an Upright(TM)
                Imaging System by FONAR Corporation.

                Dr. Nath said: "The Stand-Up(TM) MRI has many advantages in planning
                reconstructive surgeries such as brachial plexus repair,
                musculoskeletal reconstruction and microvascular reconstructive
                procedures. Until now, there was no imaging modality capable of
                imaging anatomy in the upright position, which is physiologic for
                extremity function and certain blood flow characteristics important to
                microvascular reconstruction. We see unlimited potential for this
                technology in improving the results of surgery and patient outcome. I
                have no doubt that healthcare expenditures will be more efficient as
                our outcomes improve based on improved surgical planning. Our group is
                planning to purchase at least 5 to 8 more units for the local area
                alone."

                    FONAR has the patent to the world's only Stand Up MRI, which allows patients to be scanned in weight bearing positions. Read the comments made by the doctors and MRI centers who have been purchasing them.
                    And why do you think that it is bargain priced?
                    The Stand Up MRI is relatively new, and sales are just beginning to take off, and the company is just now returning to profitability. While it was down, it had to dilute its shares in order to avoid taking on massive debt. This kept it at a very low price. Now that sales are coming in, the dilution will end, and the book value of each share is bound to increase - along with the share price. I like to buy good companies that have been kicked in the balls, and are just getting back on their feet. If you look at FONR's finbancial history, you will see that even as of March, its losses were lessening, and its revenues were increasing. With the influx of sales of the 1.5 million dollar machines (which are coming with increased frequency), I expect its upcoming reports to be even stronger. If you look at its long term weekly chart, you will see that it is moving decisively off of a long term base, on increasing volume. This is a sign that smart money is accumulating it. In my experience, buying a company with solid financials, increasing revenues and earnings (or at least rapidly decreasing losses), moving up on increasing volume off of a bargain basement price is a winning ticket. I would be very surprised to see FONR fall from here, and fully expect it to at least double or triple within the next year. This is one of the best low-priced stock plays I have seen in quite some time.

                        I do agree that you should never, ever invest in something based
                        solely on a recommendation. I like getting tips from people, but
                        always, always, always do my own research, and only buy if it is a
                        company I understand and think will grow. We all develop our own
                        investment styles, and are much better off trading in stocks by
                        criteria we like, know and understand.

                        I have passed on recommendations that skyrocketed, solely because I
                        personally did not understand how the company worked, or what the
                        person doing the recommending saw in it. This is fine, since I have
                        also passed on more recommendations that tanked.

                        FONR is precisely the kind of stock I personally like to buy the best.
                        Usually, though, I will get out of a trade after a big quick up move -
                        but I intend to stay with FONR for a while, even if it corrects, as I
                        think there is great long term potential with the Stand Up MRI, as
                        sales continue to roll in and the company becomes profitable.

                          I have been checking and following it.Good job John. I have not bought FONR yet however, I like when I havemore understanding than I have currently. In the last few years, I didquite OK with my stock investments, but nothing spectacular.i
                          I do agree that you should never, ever invest in something based solely on a recommendation. I like getting tips from people, but always, always, always do my own research, and only buy if it is a company I understand and think will grow. We all develop our own investment styles, and are much better off trading in stocks by criteria we like, know and understand.
                          Right. So far, I do not see how I can understand the future of Fonar.
                          I have passed on recommendations that skyrocketed, solely because I personally did not understand how the company worked, or what the person doing the recommending saw in it. This is fine, since I have also passed on more recommendations that tanked.
                          Exactly.
                          FONR is precisely the kind of stock I personally like to buy the best. Usually, though, I will get out of a trade after a big quick up move - but I intend to stay with FONR for a while, even if it corrects, as I think there is great long term potential with the Stand Up MRI, as sales continue to roll in and the company becomes profitable.
                          To me a stand up MRI seems to have very little use, relative to the
                          whole MRI market. But obviously if Fonar sells, say, 200 units per
                          year, they will do well. There are many unknowns here for me. I tried
                          thinking how to understand them better, and could not come with a way
                          to do so. Also I was put off by the insider stock sales and their
                          stock dilution, which leads to substantial overstating of profits
                          (understating of losses in Fonar's case).

                          My personal investing style is a little less exciting than yours, I
                          like to look at established companies that fall out of popularity for
                          wrong reasons. Home Depot was the latest. Plus I own some Berkshire
                          Hathaway stock, which has not done spectacularly, but the company is
                          doing decently so I will hold on to it. I bought most of my BRK stock
                          at relatively advantageous prices. Some of it I keep since 5-6 years
                          ago in a stock certificate.

                            Second quarter earnings will be released after market close today - if

                              MWY will soon be much cheaper! It released **** earnings after hours
                              today. Look out below!!! I also agree that "goodwill" assets are
                              crap.

                              At some point, if the new CEO can turn it around, MWY might be worth

                              A similar situation arose recently with circuit city. It fell to 3 orso (which I missed because I was not paying attention being busy withfamily nonsense), and then rose to 6-7. At which point I noticed itand noted that CC had a great balance sheet with $11.5 in equity, nobull****, likely no fake inventories or goodwill etc.I made several trades on CC all of which made money as it went up anddown. I feel that it is a good bet since CC has real value in it andmay become a target for acquisition by anyone who is looking fordecent store real estate etc. I may rebuy CC yet again if it fallsbelow 9.i
