DrK was presenting today at the lab meeting about our database of people with MS at Barts. We are also linking up with the MS register. The issue of getting data from scans uploaded was mentioned tobe a bottleneck because radiographers are snowed under with their day to day MRI duties, so having an automated way to read scans would be a time saver but would put the imaging centres out of business as the central hubs are used to read scans for clinical trials. This paper reports on attempts to do this, maybe DrK can comment on how accurate it would need to be before we ditch the human touch.
Sorry I don't have time to try and explain the different types of images used here I would need to do some reading.
Maybe we can do it in an educational post in future. If you click on the tab "education" above their are a few in "teaching posts"
