FEBRUARY TALK: AIs (Neural Networks) for processing medical imaging data, specifically magnetic resonance elastography data

This talk will examine a specific application of AI in medical image processing. Magnetic resonance elastography is the process of capturing wave propagation through soft tissue using an MRI scan, and then calculating the stiffness of tissue from the captured wave images. This calculation has no fully inclusive mathematical solution. AI have presented a novel method for estimating tissue stiffness from captured wave images. This talk will be broken into 2 parts, background followed by a google colab demo, so please bring a laptop if you wish to run the code yourself.
