Improved interpretation of MRI data

01.11.2016

In the third in a series of five Norway Pumps & Pipes lunch seminars this fall, Chief Scientist Geir Nævdal told the audience that so-called contrast agent enhanced dynamic Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an important technique in order to classify anomalies in tissue and blood circulatory system, such as tumors and kidney failure.

The MRI image sequence provides a representation of the concentration of the contrast agent used, but the images must also be given a meaningful clinical interpretation. The fundamental question is whether a mathematical model developed for modeling of flow in porous reservoir rocks can provide a better dynamic image interpretation than traditional methods, said Nævdal.
This requires us to formulate adequate flow models, establishing a method to reconcile data and models and comparing the results of the proposed method with the results of available state-of-the-art methods, emphasized the chief scientist.
A new method for better utilization of dynamic MRI data will potentially lead to better patient treatment. However, in the first place the aim is to inspire further research in this direction. In addition, we foresee that better interpretation tools would be of interest to companies delivering equipment and software related to MRI, said Nævdal.
