Medical Imaging Research and AI

Medical imaging is one of the major breakthroughs that has changed clinical medicine in the past millennium. It has changed the way physicians think, manage and treat medical conditions, and is directly linked to greater life expectancy.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning is the next medical imaging paradigm, with:

  • Improved acquisition schemes for higher frame rates and improved image quality​.
  • Robust image analysis for improved workflow, automated measurements, and data mining​.
  • Computer-aided diagnosis for more accurate medicine, utilising the current and future wealth of digitised information.

The GEMINI centre MIRA: Medical Imaging Research and AI is established in Trondheim to gather the strong academic and clinical groups working with medical image analysis at NTNU, St. Olavs hospital and SINTEF. Our focus is on AI applications for MR, ultrasound and CT imaging, where Trondheim-based research groups are in the forefront nationally and internationally, but also on applications with a clear synergy potential such as digital pathology. The long-term aim is to make an impact for patients and health care providers by developing, validating and implementing viable AI solutions for medical imaging.
