2022 ICLR Paper
April 22, 2022

Burhan was the first author of a new paper, Zero-Shot Self-Supervised Learning for MRI Reconstruction, published in ICLR 2022, a flagship AI conference. This work proposes a zero-shot self-supervised learning approach to perform subject-specific deep learning MRI reconstruction to tackle generalizability issues related to changes in sampling pattern, acceleration rate, SNR, image contrast, and anatomy.
