Provides services for SI-traceable calibrations of MRI-based biomarkers (such as proton relaxation times, water diffusion and tumor volume), in imaging calibration structures (phantoms), phantom materials, tissue mimics, and human tissue. The program develops physics models and the uncertainty framework required to provide SI-traceability. Services can be found at https://shop.nist.gov/, type in “MRI” in the product search window.
Biomarkers are parameters that can be quantitatively measured in-vivo and provide information on tissue health/ pathology.
Phantoms are medical imaging calibration structures designed to test scanner performance, image quality, and image-based measurements.
