How Artificial Intelligence can revolutionise healthcare

#artificialintelligence

German based Siemens Healthineers purpose is to enable healthcare providers to increase value by empowering them on their journey towards expanding precision medicine, transforming care delivery, and improving patient experience, all enabled by digitalising healthcare. An estimated five million patients globally everyday benefit from their innovative technologies and services in the areas of diagnostic and therapeutic imaging, laboratory diagnostics and molecular medicine, as well as digital health and enterprise services. They are a leading medical technology company with over 170 years of experience and 18,000 patents globally. With about 50,000 dedicated colleagues in over 70 countries, they will continue to innovate and shape the future of healthcare. Speaking to HEQ, Global Head of Digitalizing Healthcare Joerg Aumueller explains the integration of AI into healthcare and how Siemens Healthineers are leading the change.


Increasing Presence of AI at RSNA Reflects Emphasis on Efficiency

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) sizzled at the Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA) 2018 meeting as vendors promoted new, old and unconventional technologies as means to increase efficiency throughout imaging. New releases were unveiled in imaging modalities, notably magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT). But excitement was muted compared to enthusiasm for AI, which has been high for two years. Interest in AI was stoked by multiple medical societies at their annual meetings in the weeks leading up to RSNA 2018. The Radiological Society of North America contributed further through its decision to set up a machine learning showcase in the back of the North exhibit hall. Enthusiasm for enterprise imaging (EI) increased with the vendor promotion of AI software that promised to streamline workflow. This "coattail effect" was seen in multimodality exhibits including those of GE, Siemens, Philips and Canon, which promoted the use of AI not just to improve scanners, but to boost the performance of picture archive and communication systems (PACS) and vendor neutral archives (VNA) as well.


Article - FDA Clears Siemens' AI-Based MRI Interpretation Assistants

#artificialintelligence

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared two additional Siemens Healthineers artificial intelligence-based software assistants in the AI-Rad Companion family. The AI-Rad Companion Prostate MR for Biopsy Support automatically segments the prostate on MRI images and enables radiologists to mark lesions, facilitating targeted prostate biopsies. "These new AI-Rad Companion applications for MR exams in the brain and prostate regions will help physicians manage their workloads and achieve a patient-focused decision-making process to increase efficiency and improve the quality of care," said Peter Shen, Vice President of Innovation and Digital Business at Siemens Healthineers North America. The AI-Rad Companion Brain MR for Morphometry Analysis supports brain volumetry, which involves measuring the volume of gray matter (nerve cells), white matter (nerve cell connections), and cerebrospinal fluid in various segments of the brain and comparing the results to normal volumes. In typical clinical presentation and when combined with independent confirmation, reduced volume may indicate Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, or other forms of dementia.¹


10 Wonderful Examples Of Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) For Good

#artificialintelligence

One of the many benefits of using artificial intelligence (AI) is to help us view societal problems from a different perspective. While there's been much hubbub about how AI might be misused, we must not overlook the many ways AI can be used for good. Our global issues are complex, and AI provides us with a valuable tool to augment human efforts to come up with solutions to vexing problems. Here are 10 of the best ways artificial intelligence is used for good. Artificial intelligence, powered by deep-learning algorithms, is already in use in healthcare.
