CaliberMRI, Inc. Announces Award to Improve Pediatric Brain Imaging at More than 25 Sites Around the World

CaliberMRI, an industry leader in standardization of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), has been awarded a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to improve repeatability and reproducibility of diagnostic imaging for neonatal and pediatric brain development of children in Africa and Southeast Asia. CaliberMRI supports research into pediatric brain development through standardization and calibration of low field MRI scanners deployed at more than 25 sites in both high and low- to middle-income countries. CaliberMRI will be providing phantoms (ground truth reference objects) and analysis software to ensure that the data collected can be compared across sites and over time.  “Following our recent rollout of novel portable MRI technology across five continents, it is imperative that we achieve consistent image quality at these new facilities” said Steve Williams, Principal Investigator, Head of Department of Neuroimaging at the Centre for Neuroimaging, King’s College London. “System standardization with CaliberMRI will allow us to pool data and quantify brain development, pathology and response to a myriad of potential new treatments for the most vulnerable in society.”
