Machine learning algorithms to speed up image biomarker analysis in heart MRI scans

According to research published in journal Circulation:Cardiaovascular imaging cardiac MRI analysis utilizing machine learning algorithms can be performed significantly faster and with similar precision compared to human experts.

In the study, researchers trained a neural network to read the cardiac MRI scans. Utilizing artificial intelligence, a scan can be analyzed in approximately four seconds compared to 13 minutes for the human reviewer. When the AI was tested for precision researchers found that there was no significant difference compared to humans.

Researchers made available the data utilized for this study at thevolumeresource.com. This resource also intends to test and validate new cardiac MRI post-processing technology and machine learning techniques.
