Researchers at Microsoft and Case Western Reserve University researchers developed an algorithm for a future quantum computer that served to enhance the speed and quality of medical imaging. Microsoft and Case Western Reserve University researchers have enhanced the speed and quality of medical imaging with an algorithm designed to work on a future quantum computer. The researchers focused on a type of medical imaging called magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF). While running the quantum algorithm on a conventional computer resulted in a significant increase in the speed and precision of the MRF scans, the results would have been even more impressive on a large-enough quantum computer. The development is the latest in a series of projects in which researchers have used algorithms designed for future quantum computers to improve calculations running on today's existing hardware.
