The platform for supporting medical decision-making “Celsus” began to analyze the results of computed tomography of the brain, the press service of the National Technology Initiative Platform (NTI) told Izvestia.
“Artificial intelligence looks for foci of hemorrhage and gives the result within a few minutes, helping doctors make decisions about emergency care faster. In addition, the system is being finalized for detecting brain cancer during CT examinations, ”the NTI noted.
Using neural networks, Celsus also analyzes mammography (recognizes the presence of benign or malignant changes in the images, indicates their localization, and then interprets the results according to international standards), fluorography and chest x-ray (screening the population for tuberculosis), CT scan of the chest ( COVID-19 and cancer).
Since last year, “Celsus” has been connected to the unified radiological system of Moscow, where data from all studies with CT, X-ray systems and other devices are collected. As the commercial director of the project Artem Kapninsky explained, in addition to Moscow, the commercial operation of the system is carried out in the Krasnodar Territory, the Ivanovo Region, the Republic of Dagestan, the Kaluga Region, and the Tambov Region.
On September 7, it was reported that scientists from Nanyang University of Technology in Singapore have developed a method by which they taught artificial intelligence to diagnose glaucoma in the early stages.
The AI algorithm suite consists of two neural network components. Both networks mimic how the brain works. The first network learns quickly based on the stereophonic images of the fundus, and the second network scans them. The outputs of the two components are then combined to produce the final forecast results.
During the experiment, specialists used 282 images of the fundus (72 cases of glaucoma and 212 images of healthy eyes). As a result, the AI demonstrated 97% accuracy in diagnosing glaucoma, and the initial scanning accuracy was increased by the use of paired stereo images.
On August 9, Izvestia reported that specialists from the Samara State Medical University have developed the world’s first three-dimensional psychodiagnostic system with elements of artificial intelligence, based on the use of virtual reality technology.
