Researchers at King’s College London used NVIDIA Cambridge -1, UK’s most powerful supercomputer dedicated to AI research in healthcare and MONAI, an open source AI software framework, to create 100,000 high resolution 3D images of human brains.

Jorge Cardoso, researcher in Artificial Medical Intelligence at King’s College London and CTO of the new London Medical Imaging and AI Centre for Value-based Healthcare, is heading the project.

Cambridge-1 and MONAI were combined to create an AI factory for synthetic data that let researchers run hundreds of experiments, choose the best AI models and run inference to generate images.

“We couldn’t have done this work without Cambridge-1 and MONAI, it just wouldn’t have happened,” Cardoso said.

Cardoso is working with a national repository in the UK, Health Data Research to host the images so that healthcare researchers can access them for free. This will do away with one of the major challenges faced by the healthcare researchers fraternity: Medical images are not widely available due to privacy concerns
The team is also working to extend this approach in creating 3D images of any part of the human body. In addition to the images, plans are on to make the AI models available to researchers so that they can create images as per their needs.
