Facebook and the NYU School of Medicine made headlines back in August 2018 when they announced their plan to improve MRI times using AI. More than a year later, Popular Science has released an in-depth report on how that collaboration is progressing.
For example, a study by NYU researchers focused on the overall quality of AI-created MRI scans is being prepared for academic review. AI has the ability to do more with less data, so the team’s hope is that a good enough algorithm will be able to produce accurate, radiologist-approved images while acquiring much less data. And if AI can successfully develop strong enough scans, the belief is that Facebook and NYU can speed up the process in a way to benefit providers and patients alike.
“My dream is to have five-minute scan times for every joint,” Michael Recht, chair of the radiology department at NYU Langone Health, explained to Popular Science.
