Quantitative MRI technology developer CaliberMRI has received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to help standardize portable MRI 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. The company will be providing phantoms 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, PhD, principal investigator on the project and head neuroimaging at King's College London, in a CaliberMRI news release.
