Face­book, NYU to ini­ti­ate fastMRI us­ing AI

BioSpectrum (India) - - WORLD NEWS -

Face­book has part­nered with New York Uni­ver­sity (NYU) School of Medicine to ini­ti­ate a re­search project fo­cused on lev­er­ag­ing ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) to make mag­netic res­o­nance imag­ing (MRI) scans ten times faster. Un­der the fastMRI col­lab­o­ra­tion, Face­book AI Re­search (FAIR) group and the med­i­cal school’s Ra­di­ol­ogy depart­ment will in­ves­ti­gate the use of AI in ex­pe­dit­ing the re­con­struc­tion of MR im­ages. As part of the col­lab­o­ra­tion, the uni­ver­sity will pro­vide Face­book with ac­cess to about three mil­lion im­ages of MRI scans of the knee, brain and liver. This data from 10,000 clin­i­cal cases will be used to train the al­go­rithms. Ac­cord­ing to Face­book and NYU, pa­tient names and all other crit­i­cal health in­for­ma­tion have been re­moved from the im­ages, as well as raw scan­ner data. The part­ners in­tend to open-source their work to en­able other re­searchers to repli­cate and build on their find­ings.
