Featured article: Utility of deep learning networks for the generation of artificial cardiac magnetic resonance images in congenital heart disease

Diller et al illustrate the utility of progressive generative adversarial networks for generating large amounts of realistically looking cardiac MRI images, including of rare cardiac conditions. The generated images are not subject to data anonymity and privacy concerns and can be shared freely between institutions.

Featured article: SPectroscOpic prediction of bRain Tumours (SPORT): study protocol of a prospective imaging trial

The aim of this Study Protocol by Franco et al is to investigate the predictive value of MR-spectroscopy in order to establish a solid preoperative molecular stratification algorithm of glial brain tumours. This study may have the opportunity to support surgical and oncological decisions to improve personalized tumour treatment.


Aims and scope
