Improved Analysis of Brain Tumour Images through Artificial Intelligence

Jülich, 18 October 2018 – To detect brain tumours and distinguish them from other tissue changes, doctors use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and a special form of positron emission tomography (PET). In two studies, Jülich, Cologne, and Aachen researchers have now shown how artificial intelligence can be used to obtain valuable additional information from the images that is otherwise hidden from the doctor’s eye.
