The standard phantom developed by NPL and Gold Standard Phantoms will be used to conduct a nationwide survey across hospitals in the UK to investigate the capability of the MRI scanners currently in use. Clinical trials making use of standard phantoms will be able to ensure consistency of results by reducing measurement uncertainty. This has the potential to speed up and improve confidence in drug trial studies.
Recent developments in machine learning-based algorithms for the interpretation of MRI scans will also benefit from these new phantoms. By relying on quantitative measures with known levels of uncertainty and error margins, artificial intelligence systems in radiology will gain experience and, possibly, learn methods of diagnosis more quickly.
