Video stabilizer for Cardiac-MRI (CMRI) perfusion

TechnologySeveral Cardiac-MRI (CMRI) sequences are influenced by diaphragm body motion throughout the respiratory and cardiac cycles. Stabilizing these videos might allow a better medical diagnosis by radiologists. Video-stabilization and ROI-tracking are well-known problems in computer-vision, with many practical applications. However these two problems become even more challenging for medical gray videos, in which separating ROI […] Read More >

Multi-Modal Deep Neural Networks for Multi-Sequence MRI Guided Procedures

Image guided surgery is becoming the standard for high accuracy, low risk procedures. In this context, MRI is often the imaging modality of choice since it provides unrivalled contrast between soft tissues and consequently best detectability of the procedure target. MRI is conceptually a multi-sequence technique in which multiple scans providing complementary information are used […] Read More >
