IBM, MedyMatch to Develop Brain Imaging Technology

#artificialintelligence

MedyMatch, an Israeli-based tech company, stated on Thursday that it will integrate with IBM (IBM) Watson Health to create pictures for hospital imaging experts to help doctors identify intracranial bleeding from head trauma and stroke. At first, IBM Watson Health will issue a MedyMatch brain bleed detection application worldwide. Next, IBM Watson Health and MedyMatch will generate interoperability between MedyMatch's application and IBM Watson Health Imaging's offerings. The initial deal is a five-year license agreement that will result in several millions of dollars in annual recurring licensing fees to MedyMatch.


IBM's Watson will diagnose heart disease when doctors may have missed the signs

Mashable

Getting treatment for heart disease depends on a diagnosis from doctors, who can occasionally miss the subtle signs of trouble. IBM thinks it can help those doctors through artificial intelligence -- namely its Watson technology famous for besting Jeopardy champions and researching cancer. The company announced the introduction of its newest feature as part of its broader expansion of Watson Health's medical imaging initiative, which will now include 24 healthcare organizations around the world. This is a different challenge for Watson. For the first time, IBM's technology will be looking over medical data that includes images such as ultrasounds, x-rays and other types of visuals used by medical professionals.


How machine learning could help doctors improve the reading of medical images

#artificialintelligence

The radiology world has been abuzz with discussions of machine learning and what artificial intelligence may mean for the future of the field. The goal is for the technology to quickly scan medical images and prioritize abnormal results, allowing doctors to spend their time on the more difficult cases. The machines would also provide a check on human error. Companies are jumping on board. IBM Watson Health, which acquired enterprise imaging software company Merge Healthcare in 2015, plans to put its Watson supercomputer to work analyzing medical images.

Have you heard of optoacoustic imaging? This is how it's saving lives

#artificialintelligence

Optoacoustics is similar in some respects to ultrasound imaging. In the latter, a probe sends ultrasonic waves into the body, which the tissue reflects. Sensors in the probe detect the returning sound waves and generate a picture of the inside of the body. Optoacoustic imaging instead sends very short laser pulses into the tissue, where they're absorbed and converted into ultrasonic waves. Similarly to ultrasound imaging, researchers can then detect the waves convert them into images.
