UCSF technology center wins $5.5M grant for new MRI research

The University of California, San Francisco, said Friday it’s been awarded $5.5 million by the National Institutes of Health to develop new magnetic resonance imaging technology.
The hope is that UCSF can help develop imaging technology that could allow radiologists to scan images of tumors and other diseased tissue more rapidly and obtain results that are more detailed than is possible with current machines.
A key is a new device that can boost an MRI’s signal more than 50,000 times, the university said.
