Perfusion Phantom Debut at ISMRM-ESMRBM 2018 in Paris

On Sunday 17 June in Paris, Myles Capstick of the IT’IS Foundation demonstrated the new perfusion phantom designed and fabricated by ZMT ZurichMedTech AG for the Advisory Board of the EU-EMPIR project “Metrology for multi-modality imaging of impaired tissue perfusion”, which met shortly before the official opening of the 2018 joint annual meeting of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) and the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB)

The perfusion phantom, which is based on a feasibility prototype developed by project partner Dr. Amedeo Chiribiri of King's College London, satisfies one aim of the project, to develop a new physical standard phantom for quantitative medical imaging that realistically mimics perfusion in a patient. The Advisory Board, comprised of clinicians and manufacturers of magnetic resonance imaging equipment, were impressed with the new phantom and pleased with the progress on the project.
