Brigham and Women's wins $2m equipment grant

Brigham and Women's Hospital is one of 14 research centers to receive a total of $20.65 million in High-End Instrumentation grants to buy advanced biomedical equipment.

The National Institutes of Health made the one-time awards through its National Center for Research Resources, which announced the round of funding today.

Brigham and Women's, the only research institution in Massachusetts to be named, received the maximum award of $2 million. It will purchase a 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging scanner to be used for navigation during open surgeries, minimally invasive treatments, vascular procedures and thermal ablation of tumors, the NIH statement said.

Previous winners since the program's inception in 2002 have included Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brandeis University, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital.
