To help suspicious patients diagnose Covid-19 faster, the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR) have launched an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm designed to help detect Covid-19 using the chest X-ray According to its developers, a tool called Atman AI used to detect chest X-rays shows an accuracy of 96.73%.
Dr. UK Singh, DRDO CAIR Director said that the development of diagnostic tools is part of DRDO’s commitment to helping doctors and front-line partners diagnose and treat COVID patients quickly and effectively. “In view of the limited ability to test the coronavirus, we are eager to develop artificial intelligence tools for rapid X-ray analysis. “This will help to automatically detect radiation results that indicate Covid-19 within a few seconds, so clinicians and radiologists.
Doctors can classify cases more effectively, especially in emergency situations. The team behind the program also discovered that X-ray sorting has proven to be fast, cheap and efficient. “This can be a very useful tool, especially in small towns in our country, because it is not easy to obtain a computed tomography scan. Due to the excessive workload of CT scans for other diseases and diseases, this will also reduce the radiologist’s existing workload and using CT scanning equipment for COVID.
The country decided to use this tool in nearly 1,000 hospitals across the country with the support of HCG Academics. “The use of chest X-ray algorithms is an effective classification tool that ordinary people in the most remote areas of the country can use. This will seriously affect timely care and appropriate treatment.” 5C Network Managing Director, Dr. Kalyan Sivasailam.
HCG Cancer Hospital Academic Research Center Academic Director Vishal Rao said that the new tool will improve hospital efficiency without increasing the financial burden of patients. And health system. “He added that similar methods will also help assess epidemic respiratory diseases.
