MR optimizes diagnoses and long-term patient management

GE Healthcare was recently featured in USA Today for how MR technology optimizes diagnosis and long-term treatment. The article cited several new MR technologies from the company which are making it easier for patients to undergo the scans and doctors to use MR imaging for diagnosing neurological diseases and disorders. These technologies include AIRx™, which uses a deep-learning approach to automatically detect and suggest “slices” for neurological exams and deliver consistent and quantifiable results from scan to scan. Also mentioned is Quantib™ Brain software which uses machine learning to identify where lesions are in a patient’s brain, while color coding new and old lesions and measuring brain volume.
From a comfort point of view, these technologies are making an impact. “No matter how the patient’s head is positioned, AIRx™ will place those slices in the same location, reducing variation amongst technologists,” says Heide Harris, Global Product Marketing Director, MR Applications and Visualization for GE Healthcare.
Technology advances from GE Healthcare have also increased exam speed. Ten years ago an exam took 25-35 minutes but with the latest advances many exams can be completed in about 10 minutes.
