Machine learning can make medical images more reliable

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offers great opportunities when it comes to diagnosing cancer. However, the scanning procedure is extremely sensitive. One of the many problems occurs if the patient moves ever so slightly during the scan, resulting in a blurry image. This makes it more difficult to accurately determine the size and position of the cancer tumor. However, precision treatment, for example directing radiation so that it attacks the tumor but not the healthy tissue around the tumor, requires precision imaging.
