AI speeds MRI scans

Facebook and NYU’s fastMRI project, led by Larry Zitnick, uses AI in an attempt to make MRI imaging 10 times faster. Neural networks will be trained to fill in missing or degraded parts of scans, turning them from low resolution into high. The goal is to significantly reduce the time patients must lie motionless inside an […]

AI – optimized glioblastoma chemotherapy

Pratik Shah, Gregory Yauney,  and MIT Media Lab researchers have developed an AI  model that could make glioblastoma chemotherapy regimens less toxic but still effective. It analyzes current regimens and iteratively adjusts doses to optimize treatment with the lowest possible potency and frequency toreduce tumor sizes. In simulated trials of 50 patients, the machine-learning model […]

AI predicts drug combination complications

Stanford’s Monica Agrawal, Jure Leskovec and Marinka Zitnik used AI to study the body’s underlying cellular machinery and predict side effects of drug combinations. There are about 1,000 known side effects and 5,000 drugs on the market, making nearly 125 billion possible side effects between all possible pairs of drugs. The team created a network describing […]
