Case Western Reserve University is teaming with Microsoft Quantum to advance MRI accuracy in short order. A relatively stale avenue in the medical industry, MRI technology is advancing once again thanks to Microsoft’s quantum computing research, in particular, quantum algorithms tailored to MRIs. Microsoft will contribute quantum algorithm advances which are anticipated to allow improved diagnostic capabilities hopefully geared toward identifying specific types of cancerous tissues. In total, the endeavor is coupling CWRU MRI research with Microsoft’s quantum computing, machine learning, and virtual reality, to embark on advanced medical solutions.
