This is an example of artificial intelligence automation for cardiac MRI using an AI app from TeraRecon's Envoy AI marketplace. The GE MRI image has bee countoured, anatomy labeled and all quantification automated by the AI, greatly reducing post-processing time. See this and other new AI imaging technologies from the 2019 RSNA meeting.

As interventional procedures become more complex, one of the biggest issues is the ability of operators to see the devices they are using in the soft tissue anatomy that is mostly invisible under 2-D fluoroscopy. Several companies have developed new navigation aids, including multimodality fusion imaging software from Philips, GE and Siemens. This image shows a new system being developed by Centerline Biomedical. There is a more detailed image below.
