Title project: Responsible implementation of quantitative MRI (ResQuMRI) Description: Technical opportunities of quantitative MRI in radiology have been extensively debated, but how to responsibly develop these technologies has not yet been an issue of concern. This is relevant because there are many uncertainties about the desirability, feasibility and implementation of the technology and views on this are not necessarily aligned among actors in the healthcare system. The ResQuMRI project addresses this by:
- evaluating the responsible implementation of quantitative MRI, taking into account operational issues, position in clinical workflows, patient experiences, ethical and legal issues, and commercial aspects;
- studying quantitative MRI as part of long-term innovation pathways that include future scenarios in which AI-assisted diagnosis complements conventional radiology.
