Abstract: The integration of deep learning in medical imaging devices offers many opportunities including enhancing images, facilitating computer-aided diagnosis, and enabling image-guided interventional surgery. To address the challenge of recovering fine details for MRI reconstruction from under-sampled data, pyramid convolutional recurrent neural network and neural ODEs have been proposed. In the case of Retrospective Cine Cardiac MRI (CMR), the requirement for prolonged breath-holding during data acquisition can cause discomfort for patients. A close-to-real-time acquisition method has been proposed that does not rely on either ECG gating or multiple breath-holds. Additionally, a fully automated CMR myocardium strain (an early indicator of cardiac dysfunction) assessment system has been proposed for accurate strain analysis. In percutaneous coronary intervention procedures, devices such as stents need to be deployed in arteries under the guidance of X-ray fluoroscopy. The limitations of image quality and cardiac and respiratory motion can make it challenging for physicians to accurately assess the device’s status. To address this challenge, we propose a stent tracking method that combines a CNN and a GCN. The tracked devices can be utilized to enhance the view during the procedure.
