ISMRM: Personalized breast cancer screening is at hand
May 17, 2019 -- The advent of better risk assessment methods and more appropriate utilization of imaging modalities like breast MRI open the door for personalized breast cancer screening strategies, according to a presentation Thursday at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) annual meeting in Montreal.  Discuss
ISMRM: AI can generate synthetic contrast-enhanced MRI
May 17, 2019 -- MONTREAL - An artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm can produce high-quality synthetic contrast-enhanced brain MR images, potentially helping to avoid usage of gadolinium-based contrast agents, according to a presentation Thursday at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) annual meeting.  Discuss
SMRT: Simple solution improves 7T field homogeneity
May 17, 2019 -- MONTREAL - While 7-tesla MRI offers high resolution and strong contrast, its shortcoming is the lack of field homogeneity. This can be addressed with the use of dielectric pads, according to poster research presented at the Society for MR Radiographers & Technologists (SMRT) annual meeting.  Discuss
ISMRM: AI paves the way for precision medicine
May 16, 2019 -- MONTREAL - Artificial intelligence (AI) in medical imaging could open the door for huge advances in healthcare by assisting in diagnosis, the understanding of disease development, and the prediction of patient outcomes, according to a talk at the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) annual meeting.  Discuss
