New Research Finds Fast MRI Scans Generated with Artificial Intelligence Were as Accurate as Traditional MRI

Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - 11:30pm

NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- New research finds that rapid magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans generated with artificial intelligence (AI) were just as effective as, and were diagnostically interchangeable with, traditional MRI.

Key Points: 
  • NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- New research finds that rapid magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans generated with artificial intelligence (AI) were just as effective as, and were diagnostically interchangeable with, traditional MRI.
  • The results could significantly improve the patient experience, expand access to MRIs, and potentially enable new use-cases for MRI.
  • Because the fastMRI scans require four times less data, patients can be imaged much faster and spend less time in the scanning machine.
  • The fastMRI team hopes this open approach will speed progress towards clinical implementation and lead to new ways to use AI to accelerate MRI scans.
