As part of ASELSAN Research Center’s project to develop clinically feasible applications of Compressive Sensing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CS-MRI), efforts have been accelerated by the agreement between ASELSAN and Bilkent University – National Magnetic Resonance Research Center (UMRAM). The project aims to reduce the scan-times nearly 5-fold for several MRI applications, enabling wider clinical use of Compressive Sensing techniques. Accelerating MRI scans potentially improves patient comfort and imaging resolution, while reducing scan costs.

ASELSAN Research Center’s project aims to strengthen the entrance to the Medical Imaging field as part of ASELSAN’s activities in Health Technologies, led by ASELSAN’s UGES Sector established in 2014 to serve the civilian markets. In the meantime, several other applications of Compressive Sensing are being studied at ASELSAN Research Center to further enhance the competitive standing of ASELSAN in ongoing fields of activity.
