MRI Novel Deep Learning Super Resolution Algorithm Allows Substantial Improvement of Brain MRI Image Quality and Scan Time in a Multi Site Study

December 1, 2022

Presented at RSNA 2022

The purpose of the MRI novel study was to evaluate image quality, image resolution, and overall diagnostic sufficiency of low resolution brain MRI   images processed by a novel deep learning (DL) resolution enhancement algorithm, compared to images acquired with higher resolution from multiple sites and MRI  scanners. 

The Challenge

Large-Scale Deployment of iQMR. Alliar, the third-largest diagnostic imaging provider in Brazil has more than 100 outpatient imaging centers across the country. provides imaging services to 10,000 people a month and performs more than 800,000 MRI exams per year with more than 100 scanners of various makers and types.

As the demand for more scans per day became critical the company sought a solution that will allow it to enhance scanners’ output across the entire organization. The geographical and administrative constraints were a major concern and had a considerable weight in choosing the right solution.
