Abstract [en]

Hospitals have limited budgets, making the cost of an examination important. A whole-body MRI scan is much less expensive than a PET-CT scan, making the MRI desirable in cases when the result from the MR machine will be sufficient. Also, unlike CT, MRI does not rely on ionizing radiation, which is known to increase the risk of developing cancer.

To make the most out of the MRI results, an efficient visualization of the data is important. The goal of this project was to develop an application that would facilitate radiologists’ evaluation of whole-body MRI data of lymphoma patients. This was achieved by introducing a fused image between two types of MRI images, offering simplified loading of all the study MRI data and creating a rotatable maximum intensity projection from which points can be selected and zoomed to in other types of images.

Unfortunately the loading of the data and some parts of the interaction is somewhat slow, which is something that needs to be addressed before this application could become a possibly useful tool for the radiologists.
