AI technique turns PET scans into MR images

South Korean researchers have used a budding machine-learning technique to generate high-quality structural MR images from amyloid PET scans of dementia patients’ brains. They were then able to quantify cortical amyloid load from these MR-less images, which may open the door to ordering PET scans alone for numerous imaging scenarios in which PET/MR is now a preferred diagnostic pathway. {read more here}
