The 2013 ISMRM Challenge is to engage the MR community to create the most accurate and robust reconstruction algorithm that can be applied to accelerating cardiac dynamic imaging in different views without the need for case-by-case adjustment.

The aspiration of this Challenge is to develop algorithms with the clear potential to have an immediate and significant impact on the clinical performance of cardiac imaging. [ More info... ]

The Challenge in a nutshell:
  • You register as a team or individual

  • We provide you with undersampled data from dynamic cardiac MRI cases in different anatomical views

  • You apply your reconstruction technique to these cases, and submit your results, which will be scored by an automated algorithm

  • Your score will be updated in the leaderboard so that you can compare with everyone else's scores in an anonymous open fashion

  • You can advance your leaderboard standing by improving your technique and resubmitting the results
