For MRI results to be of greatest benefit to researchers and patients, the results must be accurate and reproducible. Standardization across MRI sites and vendor scanners is essential for comparing results and compiling data. The HPD quantitative System Phantom is the most comprehensive phantom for all your MRI calibration needs. Designed by a joint effort between ISMRM and NIST, this phantom with it’s rigorous metrics can be used to evaluate the T1, T2, Proton Density and dimensional properties of MRI scanners.
Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) can provide information on the progression or remission of cancer. It is also commonly performed for evaluating an acute ischemic stroke and is excellent at detecting small and early infarcts. To facilitate quantitative longitudinal analysis of oncologic and neurologic conditions, the HPD Quantitative MRI Diffusion Phantom was developed by a collaborative effort between RSNA/QIBA, NCI and NIST. With this phantom you can characterize MRI scanner performance when measuring the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC). It currently fits into all vendor detection coils for imaging the head and body at 1.5T and 3T.
Breast MRI is challenging due to the range of breast sizes as well as the inhomogeneous mix of fat and fibroglandular tissues, which lead to image artifacts. This quantitative phantom was specifically designed for quantitative breast MRI techniques. The quantitative MRI (qMRI) Breast Phantom includes a variety of materials referenced to NIST standards to mimic the various tissues in the breast and is capable of evaluating the accuracy and precision of the apparent diffusion coefficient.
