MRI can be so much more.
Currently, traditional grayscale MRI is not optimized to capture the most comprehensive picture of some of the worst ailments humans can suffer from, including cancer, ischemic strokes, and cartilage degeneration. Often, this leads to patients needing to undergo unnecessary and costly surgeries.
Quantitative MRI actualizes the true power of the MRI scanner so human health insights can be accurately and precisely diagnosed.
CaliberMRI provides robust QA/QC software and imaging phantoms, establishing the necessary qMRI calibration framework, so quantitative MRI can be implemented in research institutions and hospitals around the world. Ultimately, CaliberMRI provides certainty, confidence, and reliability to the radiologist and patient.
