‘low field MRI’

Grissom awarded $1.4 million NIH grant to develop smaller, quieter MRI system

Sep. 1, 2020—Vanderbilt engineers have received a $1.4 million NIH grant to work toward a compact, silent, less expensive and potentially portable MRI device. The team, led by William Grissom, associate professor of biomedical engineering, will develop new hardware, including low-field radio frequency transmission coils and amplifiers, and software that will together translate signals measured from the...
