Automating AI for Clinical Decision-Making

2019 07 Aug

Some artificial intelligence (AI)-based techniques are helping improve prediction of risks for certain diseases or disorders. Machine-learning models, for example, can be trained to find patterns ("features") in patient data and then determine a patient's risk of having lung cancer.

Machine learning cuts mammogram volume radiologists need to read

2019 05 Jun

Over 40 million mammography exams are conducted in the United States every year, with the volume of images growing exponentially. Radiologists workloads further increase with the implementation of innovative screening technologies like digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) that require more reading and testing time, increasing the pressure to deliver...

Machine learning to recognise cardiac arrest in emergency calls

2019 29 May

Nearly 600,000 people in the US and Europe combined sustain an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) annually. OHCA is a life-threatening condition, and in order to improve survival rates, it is imperative that it is recognised rapidly by medical dispatchers. Accurate recognition of OHCA either by a bystander or a dispatcher is essential for initiation... Read more
