Deep Learning with Whole-body MRI Recognises Diabetes

2021 30 Oct

Obesity is associated with diabetes, but there are metabolically healthy individuals with excess body fat and others with normal body weight who develop insulin resistance.  The key risk factor is fat distribution.  Individuals who accumulate deep abdominal and visceral fat are more likely to develop insulin resistance than individuals with subcutaneous...

Deep Learning Reduces Need for Gadolinium Contrast

2021 26 Oct

Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs), used during MRI scans, enhance brain tissue contrast. GBCAs are crucial for brain tumour care because they highlight areas with abnormal blood-brain barrier permeability that tumours cause.  This permits monitoring of treatment response and also guide surgical tumour removal.  Disadvantages to using GBCAs include...

Automated Triaging of MRIs Rules Out Cancer in Dense Breasts

2021 08 Oct

Mammography provides early detection when breast cancer treatments are more successful. Unfortunately, mammography is less sensitive in women with dense than with fatty breast tissue. This is unfortunate because the breast cancer risk is three- to six times higher in dense rather than fatty breast tissue and two times higher than that of the average... Read more
