Audio Of The Week: Full Body MRI Scans And Machine Learning

My friend Gordon suggested that I listen to this podcast about MRI scans as an early cancer detection tool.

I found it super interesting and maybe you will too.

    I understand you want to post every day, but sometimes your posts are a bit too thin – it would have been nice to know what you found interesting in the podcast, and it would have taken you only a couple dozen seconds more. It would have helped me decide if it’s worth listening to it or not. Thanks Fred.

      A “thin” post gives you an easy opportunity to make the content thicker!

    I’ve had a couple of `MRI scans. The first time was quite a daunting prospect. I had to come out after only thirty seconds. The sense of claustrophobia was a bit too much. It was an older machine, a long and narrow tunnel. Very enclosed. I didn’t like it at all. The better ones are more like the flat donut shape. They’re much more agreeable.

    My friend’s sons have to do this once a quarter. Cancer runs in their family. Sam has survived it since he got a brain tumor at age 14. He is going to college as a freshman now. You can read about there story here:
