Facebook AI, NYU Langone using AI for faster, less costly MRIs

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 26, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       Using artificial intelligence to make MRI imaging faster and less costly.   That’s the breakthrough announced recently through a partnership between Facebook AI and NYU Langone health…where Radiology Chair Dr. Michael Recht says…an MRI today can take nearly 30 minutes…and be difficult for patients…

“And our goal was to change all of that, getting the exact same information, making the same diagnosis.  In this study we were able to accelerate imaging by a factor of four.”

And it requires only new software…which will be freely shared.   Facebook AI’s Nafissa Yakubova.. says that means…

“That other groups, other researchers, other medical community members could also use this to develop further solutions to make MRIs more accessible around the world.”

Bringing costs down as well.
