Deep Learning Tool Could Offer MRI Clinical Decision Support

December 11, 2018 - Applying a deep learning model to knee magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams helped increase the accuracy and speed of knee injury classification, and could provide clinical decision support for radiologists, a study published in PLOS Medicine revealed. More MRI examinations are performed on the knee than on any other region of the body, the researchers said, resulting in a high...
