Using functional MRI (fMRI), researchers from VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam found a correlation between white matter brain damage and atrophy in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients—a primary factor of cognitive impairment in patients with the disease.
Theresa May, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has pledged millions toward government funding that will develop a "new weapon"—artificial intelligence (AI) able to improve cancer and chronic disease diagnosis.

New research has found fetal MRI can reliably identify holoprosencephaly as early as 18 weeks into pregnancy, providing added time for parents to understand and prepare for the condition.
Researchers utilized a machine learning algorithm to determine that a higher rate of change—rather than actual value of cancer antigen 125 (CA125)—is associated with abdominal recurrence of ovarian cancer. Findings may help identify patients most likely to benefit from imaging surveillance of the disease.
