About the Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation, Inc.
CSF (Chiari & Syringomyelia Foundation, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3)
non-profit organization that was founded in October 2007, with the
goal of finding a cure, raising awareness and educating scientists,
physicians, and lay persons about Chiari malformation (CM), syringomyelia
(SM) and related disorders. The office is located in Staten Island,
New York. For more information: www.CSFinfo.org
FONAR, the Inventor of
MR Scanning™ is the first, oldest and most experienced
MRI company in the industry. Incorporated in 1978, FONAR, which
is located in Melville, New York, introduced the world’s first
commercial MRI in 1980, and went public in 1981. The company’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™), allowing it
to scan patients in numerous weight-bearing positions, i.e. standing,
sitting, in flexion and extension, as well as in the conventional
The FONAR UPRIGHT®
MRI often detects patient problems that other MRI scanners cannot
because they are lie-down, ”weightless-only” scanners.
The patient-friendly UPRIGHT® MRI has a near-zero patient claustrophobic
rejection rate. As a FONAR customer states, “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 cerebral hydraulics
of the central nervous system, 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 in all the normal positions of the body, particularly in its
upright flow against gravity. Patients with whiplash or other neck
injuries are among those who will benefit from this new understanding.
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. It includes its newest technology
for measuring the Upright cerebral hydraulics of the central nervous
system. FONAR’s UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI is
the only scanner licensed under these patents.
