Machine learning scans MRIs to diagnose specific forms of muscular dystrophy – Health Imaging

A new artificial intelligence tool can accurately distinguish specific forms of muscular dystrophy by analyzing MRI scans, according to recent research out of Spain.

Diagnosing this muscle degeneration disease usually relies on genetic testing, researchers wrote in the journal Neurology. Clinical findings typically help guide the examination, including magnetic resonance imaging of where fat tissue has replaced muscle tissue. But narrowing a final conclusion down to a specific form of MD can be quite challenging.
