Enhancing clinical confidence
Applying artificial intelligence in image analysis and reporting, for automated and enhanced clinical decision support, is getting strong traction in MR and other imaging modalities as well. For MR specifically, quantitative techniques, such as MR-STAT, being developed with University Medical Center Utrecht (the Netherlands), are an important area of innovation.
By combining smart acquisition schemes and machine-assisted reconstruction, it’s possible to deliver multiple quantitative MR parameters in one fast single scan. For MR this will be a fundamental shift — from MR as images, to MR as a combination of images and data, resulting in more objective, quantified outcomes, all supporting a definitive diagnosis for each patient.
