On March 18, 2022, Champaign Imaging LLC signed an option for a University of Minnesota Regents’ patent. The 2019 patent described a Multi-Band-Sweep Imaging with Fourier Transformation (MB-SWIFT) sequence, and it was co-authored by Champaign’s founder and CEO, Curt Corum.
Champaign Imaging LLC celebrated Joshua “Josh” Hanson’s first anniversary in late May of this year. Josh had graduated from the University of Northwestern (St. Paul, MN) in May 2021. During his senior year, he worked with Champaign on a Senior Design Project. The goal was to design and build a prototype of a multi-channel digital receiver for next generation of MRI.
On April 21, 2021, the second year of Champaign Imaging LLC’s NIMH grant was officially awarded. Since this grant began in May 2020, Champaign has been developing quieter MRI sequences with motion correction capabilities. These features are especially important for pediatric patients.
Champaign Imaging LLC chose again to work with the prestigious University of Iowa’s Magnetic Resonance Research Facility (MRRC.) Champaign worked with the MRRC during its first NIH grant in 2017
After receiving a 2-year $1 million grant to work on Next Generation Pediatric Neuroimaging, Champaign Imaging LLC has selected the Omaha, Nebraska-based ScanMed LLC.
Pediatric MR imaging is especially difficult due to motion-related artifacts in the images. Often this requires general anesthesia in the clinic, which has been shown recently to be detrimental to brain development. This places unique barriers on assessment of this...
HEALPix View-order for 3D Radial Self-Navigated Motion-Corrected ZTE MRI Curtis A. Corum, Stanley J. Kruger, Vincent A. Magnotta In this work, we examine the use of Hierarchical Equal Area iso-Latitude Pixelization (HEALPix) for generation of three-dimensional (3D)...
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging with Direct Dipole Decomposition A system includes a machine readable storage medium storing instructions and a processor to execute the instructions. The processor executes the instructions to receive radial k-space magnetic...
