About Calimetrix

At Calimetrix, we are dedicated to the development of advanced quantitative MRI phantoms that meet the needs of the MR clinical and research community. Building on over 25 years of research experience, our mission is to build phantoms that facilitate clinical trials, quality assurance, and the development and testing of new quantitative imaging biomarkers. Based in Madison, Wisconsin, Calimetrix was launched in 2016 by physicians and researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
