What is Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Machine Learning and AI Techniques in Interactive Medical Image Analysis
A non-invasive imaging technology that makes 3D detailed anatomical images. It is a harmless and painless test that procedures magnets and radio waves to create detailed images of the body's organs, soft tissues, muscles, and structures.

Abstract
CAD or computer-aided detection is a valuable performance for exactly understanding medical images. Also, it has a worldwide business prospect. The present features concerning the four sub-steps—image pre-processing, segmentation, feature extraction, and classification—and the upcoming possibility of these systems in modern medical imaging have been studied in this chapter. Several researchers have highlighted the requirement for interaction between medical experts and engineers for effective improvement of these systems, and the present work is away on that track. The technological features of the above four steps in four imaging processes like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography, computed tomography (CT), and bone scintigraphy applied in the diagnosis of several acute diseases have been studied with a medical background. This chapter reviews these technological features with an observation to search the prospects to researchers along with the healthcare industry to offer reasonable medicinal facilities with approachability in even faraway localities.

Automatic Detection of Tumor and Bleed in Magnetic Resonance Brain Images
Clinical magnetic resonance imaging is an imaging technique used in radiology to form pictures of the anatomy and the physiological processes of the body in both health and disease. MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields, radio waves, and field gradients to generate images of the organs in the body. MRI does not involve x-rays, which distinguishes it from computed tomography.
