How to achieve earlier lung disease detection: the automated approach 

What challenges do doctors face while diagnosing lung diseases? How can we guarantee a precise accuracy, when a doctor has nearly 15 minutes on each patient? Lung disease identification and classification appears to a be task easily resolved by AI-powered solution. Read more to learn about computer-assisted pneumonia, COVID-19 and pneumotorax detection.

Machine Learning in Medical imaging:

automated feature extraction in diagnostics

Machine Learning (ML) algorithms focused on medical image analysis have revolutionized the diagnosis process. Now doctors can detect more diseases than previously. For example, more genetic illnesses can be recognized, which were not diagnosed before.  Let's look at use cases and illnesses AI can help with.
