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.
