Dense breast tissue appears opaque in mammograms and can hide tumors. Scientists at NYU used 200,000 anonymized mammograms to teach a deep learning algorithm to classify breast density. Computer scientists at New York University Center for Data Science together with radiology researchers from NYU School of Medicine trained an artificial... Read more

In a paper published recently in NMR in Biomedicine , CAI 2 R’s Florian Knoll describes a new way to reconstruct parametric maps from scan data in diffusion MRI. The method enables shorter scan times while retaining satisfactory information, and can be used by “anybody who is interested in accelerated... Read more
