Management Discussion

Timothy R. Damadian, President and CEO, said, "In the first quarter of Fiscal 2021, we were in the midst of coping with the negative impact that the COVID-19 pandemic was having on both our HMCA-managed and HMCA-owned sites. Our scan volume was 41,556, down by 11.6% in comparison to the scan volume in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. Now, one year later, I'm pleased to report that we completed a record-setting 48,469 scans in the first quarter of Fiscal 2022, a 16.6% increase in comparison to the first quarter of fiscal 2021, and a 3.1% increase in comparison to the pre-pandemic first quarter of fiscal 2020.

"We have several projects in progress at either existing or upcoming HMCA-managed locations. We expect to complete three projects by the end of calendar 2021: the installation of a second MRI at the Pembroke Pines, Florida site; the relocation of the 77th Street site in Uptown, Manhattan to Midtown, Manhattan; and the upgrade of one of the two MRI scanners at the White Plains, New York site. Beyond that, the installation of a new MRI facility in the Bronx, New York, is now expected to be completed in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. Finally, we are on track to establish a new facility in central Florida by the end of fiscal 2022."

Mr. Damadian continued, "Once completed, these sites will significantly contribute to HMCA revenue. However, I must point out that the pandemic, as well as governmental responses to it, continue to have the opposite effect on revenue. New York State mandated that as of October 7, 2021, all workers at diagnostic centers be COVID-19-vaccinated. That of, course, applies to all 19 of the New York-based HMCA locations. Workers who refused to be vaccinated resigned, were transferred to a non-medical segment of the company, or were dismissed.

"The mandate has been very challenging for HMCA. In our effort to replace workers who left the company, we're searching through what has become a significantly reduced pool of qualified and vaccinated workers looking for jobs. The sites struggling with reduced staffs either cut their business hours and therefore scan fewer patients or, where possible, maintain regular business hours by paying employees who are willing to work extra hours at overtime rates.

"On November 5, OSHA and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid issued their own mandates, ones that apply to both New York and Florida employees. Some states are already challenging them in court, so at this point it's too soon to predict how much their added restrictions might further burden our business. However, in recognizing the competence and loyalty that our managers and employees displayed during the company's return to pre-COVID-19 scan volumes, I'm confident they will meet these challenges as well," concluded Mr. Damadian.

Chairman of the Board, Raymond V. Damadian, M.D., said, "It is delightful that the Company continues to prosper. Due to its present management, it has become very stable. We will continue to add more imaging centers under management as time goes on. Besides the management, another reason for this success is the superior technology of FONAR's UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI which produces one of a kind MRI images in the weight-loaded position. These numerous weight-bearing positions include sitting, standing, as well as bending in flexion or extension. Furthermore, most patients relax throughout the scan and watch a large TV.

Dr. Damadian continued, "FONAR has the only MRI that has the ability to make cines (movies) of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) as it flows up and down the neck and around the brain in the upright, weight-loaded position. It is thanks to the UPRIGHT® MRI's ability to scan patients in weight-bearing positions, as well as in the recumbent, non-weight-bearing position, that we are finding significant postural differences in CSF flow. These differences may provide clues that enable physicians to find solutions to their patients' medical problems.

"Currently, our research is focused on quantifying CSF flow and the velocity at which it navigates through the neck and head. We've been able to use this quantitative CSF data collected from asymptomatic patients to identify CSF flow abnormalities in patients with symptoms. We think that further understandings of CSF flow may lead to new understanding of the role of CSF on the neurodegenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, ALS, Parkinson's, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Huntington's and Epilepsy."

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 the conventional lie-down position. 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 primary source of income and growth is attributable to its wholly-owned diagnostic imaging management subsidiary, Health Management Company of America (HMCA) www.hmca.com.

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 cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) of the central nervous system. FONAR's UPRIGHT® Multi-Position™ MRI is the only scanner licensed under these patents.
