AI will soon be helping doctors to save lives by helping them to find the right drugs, medical treatments and procedures.
The National Institute of Health (NII) says that AI-powered medical technology is being deployed in India to treat heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and cancers.
“Medical technology has been around for more than 70 years.
But in the last decade, the technology has come to the fore in several ways, like in the field of diagnostics and medical imaging,” said Anil Kumar, director of NII.
AI is a combination of machine learning and algorithms, he added.
It will be possible to analyze a patient’s condition and detect medical problems that could be caused by a particular disease or condition.
The NII says AI is now being used in the diagnosis of various diseases and conditions, including cancer, HIV, diabetes, heart disease, diabetes-related complications and other ailments.
The first medical AI, which came into being in the US in the 1990s, has become a major player in diagnosing cancer.
The research institutes have also made AI-based health assessment a key aspect of its work.
In 2017, the institute conducted its first AI-driven medical test in Mumbai.
“AI will become the key tool to help diagnose health problems,” Kumar said.
Doctors are already using it in diagnostics.
In 2016, NII also launched a trial of a medical AI system that could diagnose heart problems and detect signs of stroke.
The test helped a woman who had recently suffered a heart attack, with a diagnosis that would have been difficult without a CT scan.
The woman was able to get a second heart scan and get a diagnosis.
In a similar trial, doctors in the UK and Germany have also tested a medical computer system that can diagnose heart attacks and stroke.
“It will help save money, too.
For instance, if a patient needs a heart transplant, a medical system can help to determine if a donor has the right lung or heart,” Kumar added.
This means doctors will not need to send their patients to hospital, but can focus on a specific medical condition.
Another AI-enabled medical test can also help in diagnoses heart problems, he said.
“Doctors will be able to see if there is a problem in a patient and can get a better diagnosis,” Kumar told The Times.
“In fact, we will see the AI system being deployed more and more in the hospital, where the doctors need to see patients.
This will save lives.”
The Indian Medical Association is also encouraging medical AI.
“We are optimistic that AI can improve medical care and reduce hospital costs,” said Prakash Kaul, president of the association.
“I am also hopeful that AI will help improve the quality of medical care delivered to patients, as there are a lot of issues related to quality of care,” he added, adding that the medical AI could help in reducing waiting times in hospitals.
“As the number of hospital beds in India has increased, there is increasing demand for doctors.
So the medical and nursing professionals will need to get more AI-savvy in order to provide better quality care to patients,” Kaul said.
The Medical Council of India is also trying to make medical AI a mainstream feature.
The AI will also help the doctors find better treatment options for patients, such as drugs and surgery.
“There is a need for AI in the provision of better medical services, and in the delivery of these services, we have to work together with the medical staff and the AI,” said a senior medical officer at the medical council.
The medical AI will be used in hospitals, hospitals themselves and other government institutions as well.
“The AI can be used to check a patient is in a state of cardiac arrest or is on ventilator, and can also be used for other functions, such in diagnostic tests,” said an AI official.
“An AI-assisted diagnostic can help in detecting a potential problem in an individual, such a heart condition, and provide a personalized treatment plan for the patient,” the official added.
The government has also set up a website for medical AI to share its findings and data.
“Our goal is to build a community of medical AI researchers and medical experts to help in the dissemination of medical data, and this will help to create a network of medical experts who can share data to improve patient care,” Kumar says.
“This will also enable AI-related research, including in the fields of diagnosing diseases and predicting the course of patients.”
AI can also benefit from social influence and influence in the form of better communication with doctors.
“A doctor’s social influence can have a big impact on the doctor’s outcome,” Kumar explains.
“For example, if I say to my colleague, ‘You are a great doctor, but you are taking a long time in diagnosticating patients, because your algorithm is not working so well’, that doctor may take the view that he can improve the algorithm and then I can also take the
