One of the most transformative medical imaging tools in the last few decades has been magnetic resonance imaging, known to most as MRI. But, while powerful and insightful, MRI scans are a slow technology that can often lead to patient discomfort. For a patient already in distress, a typical scan lasting 40 to 60 minutes can be overwhelming.
Researchers recently explored how AI techniques could accelerate MRI scans. They found that AI techniques are at least as reliable as current, non-technical methods already in use and improve upon those techniques when clarifying small details in an image.
There are multiple practical benefits of using AI for MRI reconstruction:
