Caption: NIST physicist Michael Boss positions a prototype NIST phantom (a calibration tool) in an ultralow-field magnetic resonance imaging scanner at the University of California at Berkeley. NIST phantoms are intended to help assess and validate this experimental imaging method, which offers advantages in diagnosing and monitoring of certain medical conditions.
Usage Restrictions: None
