Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

MRI creates images from the resonance created in hydrogen atoms when they are polerized and an electromegntic pulse is used to knock them off axis. This section includes MR analysis software, MRI scanners, gadolinium contrast agents, and related magnetic resonance accessories.

Machine Learning IDs Markers to Help Predict Alzheimer's

Neurologists use structural and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify changes in brain tissue (both gray and white matter) that are characteristic of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The MRI images are analyzed using morphometry and tractography techniques, which detect changes in the shape and dimensions of the brain and in the tissue microstructure, respectively. In this example, the images show the normal brain of an elderly patient. Image courtesy of Jiook Cha.
