Many automatic algorithms have been proposed for analyzing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data sets. These algorithms allow clinical researchers to generate quantitative data analyses with consistently accurate results. With the increasingly large data sets being used in brain mapping, there has been a significant rise in the need for methods to accelerate these algorithms, as their computation time can consume many hours. This paper presents the results from a study on implementing such… CONTINUE READING
