A gold standard perfusion phantom for quantitative MRI
Gold Standard Phantoms is developing a model of brain perfusion to be used as a calibration device for the measurement of quantitative parameters using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Usually, MRI scanners provide images radiologists look at to diagnose illnesses. The new device will allow MRI scanners to provide images representing real numbers, in this case the amount of blood flowing through the brain. These quantitative parameters will allow radiologists and doctors to diagnose several diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease earlier.
