Study Reviewed on Radiology Today: Novel Deep Learning Super-Resolution Algorithm Allows Substantial Improvement of MRI Image Quality and Scan Time

November 23, 2023

A novel deep learning image enhancement algorithm allows substantial improvement of MRI Image quality and scan time reduction, according to a multi-site study presented at the ASNR conference in April 2023. Low resolution MRI images obtained by short protocols and automatically post-processed by an AI-assisted algorithm (iQMR by Medic Vision Imaging Solutions), were found superior to high-resolution images acquired with routine protocols.
