Microsoft’s Quantum-Inspired Algorithms Create Scanning Techniques to Assess Chemo Therapy

By IQT News posted 19 Jul 2019

(BuiltIn) Microsoft recently described how its quantum computing team is working with Case Western Reserve researchers to create more sensitive scanning techniques that can detect progress after just one dose of chemo. The new method, called Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting, is made possible with Microsoft’s “quantum-inspired” algorithms, which are made with future quantum computers in mind.
“We think we can begin to see those changes within a week, as compared to six months,” said Mark Griswold, Case Western Reserve professor of radiology and director of MRI research. “That’s really important for both patient outcomes and quality of life, because if your chemotherapy isn’t working, you just poisoned your body for nothing.”
