BRAIN intiative at the NIH

The BRAIN Initiative will be holding two virtual workshops in February 18-19 and March 9-11 to review and assess current projects and future opportunities to develop and disseminate technologies for non-invasive imaging of human brain function. Several Gordon Center Faculty members will be contributing to the workshop through presentations, moderation, and panel discussions.

Artificial Intelligence Accelerates MRI Parameter Mapping

In Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Georges El Fakhri, PhD, director of the Gordon Center for Medical Imaging in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Fang Liu, PhD, a researcher in the center, and colleagues describe their newest effort, a method that rapidly creates realistic MRI parameter maps by incorporating adversarial training into a previously created deep learning framework.
