Artificial intelligence capable of recognising dozens of pathologies in a matter of minutes is helping Russian doctors in diagnosis. In Moscow, 60 algorithms analyse studies across 29 clinical areas in real time. At the same time, eight neural network services are comprehensive.
“Comprehensive services are now available in planar diagnostic methods, X-ray methods, CT, CT assessment of chest organs and MRI. We used to have two different services to define haemorrhagic stroke and for ischaemic stroke. In fact, it is quite common to see cases of haemorrhagic stroke with an ischaemic component. There are a lot of such patients, and today this complex service helps to measure the volume of both the ischaemia zone and the haemorrhagic zone, i.e. haemorrhage”, – said Yuri Vasilyev, Director of the Centre for Diagnostics and Telemedicine of the Moscow City Health Department.
The application of this technology is one of the first in the country.
“The study is performed in inpatient clinics of Moscow medical organisations and is automatically routed according to the set rules to a service that analyses this type of study,” explained Igor Shulkin, Deputy Director for Advanced Development of the Centre for Diagnostics and Telemedicine of the Moscow City Health Department.
He claimed that artificial intelligence frees up time for doctors to prepare a report on the patient’s condition. In an emergency, every minute counts. The final word still rests with the radiologist.
Most of the functioning services, the Diagnostics and Telemedicine Centre notes, are entirely Russian developments. Today artificial intelligence systems have analysed more than 150,000 CT scans. This is reported by TV BRICS.
