On July 14-16, 2014, NIST will host a workshop on quantitative MRI, its uses and the development of standards.

The workshop will bring together key players and groups working on standards for MRI to accomplish the following goals: increased conversation amongst the existing efforts, harmonization of future efforts, and adoption of the standards efforts by the vendors.
