Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) currently plays a significant role in medical diagnostics, generating immense volumes of vital data each year from healthcare facilities globally. Nevertheless, the issues related to the storage of vast amounts of data, along with challenges in data accessibility and security, have limited its full potential to advance global healthcare. Now, a research team has developed a new platform that streamlines data sharing and enhances diagnostic capabilities across different healthcare institutions.

This innovative Cloud-MRI system, developed by a research team at Xiamen University (Xiamen, China), allows for the uploading of k-space raw data, crucial for MRI image reconstruction, to either unified servers or local edge nodes in the ISMRMRD format. This format is a standardized, vendor-neutral file type used in MRI research and development. By facilitating quicker image reconstruction and supporting sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI)-powered operations, the system considerably improves diagnostic efficiency, according to the study published in the KeAI journal Magnetic Resonance Letters.

"Traditional methods of managing MRI data face significant limitations, from storage constraints to barriers in collaborative research," said Professor Xiaobo Qu who led the research team at Xiamen University. "Our Cloud-MRI system will address these challenges by harnessing the power of distributed cloud computing, ultra-fast 6G bandwidth, edge computing, federated learning, and blockchain technology."
