How does it work?
Medical Imaging is a non-invasive pathway that allows radiologists and other healthcare professionals to diagnose, treat and monitor various health conditions.
In our interviews with radiologists, we learned most of them feel overworked because of the immense number of images they must analyze. Despite advanced imaging technologies and techniques, abnormalities are not always readily apparent.
BlueDocAITM has the capability to rapidly analyze CHEST X-RAYS using advanced AI Models to detect the presence of patterns and therefore help improve the efficiency and accuracy of radiology departments.
BlueDocAITM can connect to the central PACS system to pick up, analyze and make annotations to the medical images so the raw images and the annotated images can be reviewed by the radiologists to quickly diagnose certain medical conditions with ease.
However, these AI models can be trained and retrained as more data is made available. Since CHEST X-RAYS are the least expensive medical images as well as most commonly used to diagnose patients, it benefits the patients to get early warnings of potential pulmonary nodule which may not be detectable by naked eye and hence use deep learning (DL) models to enhance the images and detect patterns much better.
AI Models that Improve Patient Care
In the United States, lung cancer is the second most common cancer in both men and women. It’s also the leading cause of death from cancer.
Catching lung cancer early often allows for a higher likelihood of successful treatment. Regular screening of chest xrays or CT scans may help.
COVID-19 is a dangerous disease caused by a virus discovered in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. It is very contagious and has quickly spread around the world. COVID-19 most often causes respiratory symptoms that can feel much like a cold, a flu, or pneumonia, but COVID-19 can also harm other parts of the body.
It is harder to accurately detect Covid-19. However, our AI models can be used to detect and triage patients using chest xrays.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a potentially serious infectious disease that mainly affects the lungs. The bacteria that cause tuberculosis are spread from person to person through tiny droplets released into the air via coughs and sneezes.
Many tuberculosis strains resist the drugs most used to treat the disease. People with active tuberculosis must take many types of medications for months to get rid of the infection and prevent antibiotic resistance.
