NYU and Facebook team up to supercharge MRI scans with AI

Magnetic resonance imaging is an invaluable tool in the medical field, but it's also a slow and cumbersome process. NYU has been working on a way to accelerate this process, and is now collaborating with Facebook with the goal of cutting down MRI durations by 90 percent by applying AI-based imaging tools. It's important at the outset to distinguish this effort from other common uses of AI in the medical imaging field.
