Can AI help in the fight against gadolinium deposition?
February 21, 2018 -- What if gadolinium-based contrast agents could be used at just 10% of current dose levels without significantly degrading image quality or contrast enhancement? Artificial intelligence (AI) could make that possible, according to research published online February 13 in the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.  Discuss
