NYU School of Medicine's Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research develops rapid, comprehensive imaging, with a focus on MRI. In August, the center, which receives support from NIBIB, established a collaboration with the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research group, to collaborate on an imaging project, called fastMRI, that will use AI to make MRI scans up to 10 times faster.

NIBIB-funded researchers used dual PET and MRI technology to detect increased bone remodeling in the injured knees of patients likely to get osteoarthritis. This increased bone activity was often seen next to areas of early cartilage tissue degradation, suggesting an important link between degenerative changes in neighboring tissues in the disease.

A research team with funding from NIBIB has developed an advanced computing technique for rapidly and cost effectively improving the quality of biomedical imaging. The technology, called AUTOMAP finds the best computational strategies to produce clear, accurate images for various types of medical scans.

NIH-supported researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) are studying an alternative to current contrast agents used for magnetic resonance imaging. In a recent study, they showed that the experimental alternative, which is a manganese-based compound, performs as well as approved contrast agents. Their study appeared online Nov. 15, 2017, in Radiology.

Surgical planning is critical for obtaining the best outcomes, avoiding medical errors, and limiting damage to surrounding nerves and healthy tissues. Now NIBIB-funded scientists have developed a new technique for 3D-printing patient-specific organ models – here the prostate gland -- using polymers that accurately model the prostate’s dimensions and physical properties, while also providing quantitative tactile feedback, or response to pressure, incisions, and suturing.
