How a Neural Network Compares Brain MRIs In a Flash

Finding a faster way to compare MRI scans could help doctors better treat brain tumors. To that end, a group of MIT researchers has come up with a deep learning solution to compare brain MRIs in under a second. This could help surgeons check operation success in near real-time during the procedure with intraoperative MRI. It could also help oncologists rapidly analyze how a tumor is responding to treatment by comparing a patient’s MRIs taken over several months or years.
