Application: Forecast of mri images by means of a forecast model trained by supervised learning (Patent ID: US20230410312A1)

The patent filed by Bayer AG focuses on expediting MRI examinations through the use of a method, system, computer program product, contrast agent, and kit. The method involves receiving pre- and post-contrast MRI images of an examination region, feeding them into a prediction model trained through supervised learning, generating predicted MRI images for a specific time span, and displaying, outputting, or storing these images. The system includes a receiving unit, control and calculation unit, and output unit to facilitate the prediction and display of MRI images. Additionally, a computer program product is designed to execute the method steps. The contrast agent mentioned is a hepatobiliary contrast agent, specifically the disodium salt of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid, which is used to enhance imaging quality during the MRI process.

The patent also covers the use of the contrast agent in MRI methods, where the agent is administered, MRI images are generated, fed into a prediction model, and predicted images for a specific time span are displayed, outputted, or stored. The contrast agent, preferably containing gadoxetic acid or its salt, such as the disodium salt of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid, is crucial for enhancing the contrast and quality of the MRI images. The method and system described in the patent aim to streamline the MRI examination process, particularly for imaging liver or liver portions in different phases, ultimately improving diagnostic capabilities and efficiency in healthcare settings.
