Generative artificial intelligence (AI) has recently made advancements in fields like medical imaging, offering great promise for various applications. However, these models are complex and difficult to implement and reproduce, which can hinder progress in the field. To address this issue, a team of researchers from various institutions created an open-source platform called MONAI Generative Models to make building and deploying generative models easier and more standardized.
The platform has been tested through five different studies covering a range of medical imaging topics. These studies demonstrate the efficacy of the technology and its adaptability in various scenarios, including anomaly detection, image translation, denoising, and MRI reconstruction. The researchers evaluated the Latent Diffusion Model, one of the models in the package, and found it could generate new information from different datasets.
The platform also includes latent generative models, which consist of a compression model and a generating model, that are highly flexible and can be adjusted to fit new circumstances. It allows for the detection of 3D imaging data that falls outside the norm and has potential for superresolution applications.
The team tested the model’s superresolution capabilities by comparing the upscaled test set photos to their corresponding ground truth images. The results confirmed the model’s efficiency in improving image clarity.
In the future, the researchers plan to improve support for other applications like MRI reconstruction and incorporate more recent models for easier model comparison. These developments are expected to advance the field of medical generative models and their applications.
