Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare: What it Can Achieve

Artificial intelligence (Machine Learning) in medicine is poised to revolutionize the way that physicians work. Already, a wide variety of computer systems have been developed and are currently being used in a wide range of medical facilities. These machine-learning technologies allow doctors to recognize, classify, and perform pre-surgery imaging tasks with unprecedented accuracy and speed. With further development, artificial intelligence will enable doctors to access and interpret large databases, including whole-person DNA data. This will enable better disease prevention and early detection through personalized treatment.

In clinical radiology, artificial intelligence will enable better diagnosis by defining, classifying and managing target anatomical structures and radiographic characteristics. Algorithms can predict tumour location based on known or predicted anatomical relationships. For example, a machine learning algorithm can be trained to distinguish between benign and malignant mesothelioma. A classification algorithm will be able to provide a high-quality prognosis, with a high level of precision, based on the predefined structure and target anatomical characteristic. Such algorithms will also allow doctors to make decisions about surgical procedures, as well as to monitor and manage treatment.

Cancer is a major area of medical imaging due to its severity and fast rate of spread. Currently, cancer patient is faced with a mountain of different choices. Physicians can treat their cancer patients via chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery. While these options are effective, they do not give the patient the control over the course of the disease. One of the biggest problems in treatment is the ability to predict how cancer cells will behave in the future, once the treatment is complete. One of the most promising avenues of research currently focuses on the development of predictive machine learning algorithms that can leverage large databases to create generalisable targets for treatment and therefore give doctors the ability to treat patients more effectively and anticipate any changes that might occur.

Another promising application is in oncology, an area which has traditionally been difficult to treat due to the lack of a cure. Unfortunately, cancer often follows a series of related problems, such as surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy. To date, doctors cannot prevent the progression of cancer, but they can definitely reduce the chances of it spreading. As new drugs and treatments become available, the ability to pre-trained a machine learning system to recognize patterns associated with oncology can dramatically improve treatment planning. It can also make the treatment process easier for cancer survivors, because they no longer have to undergo the arduous and often soul destroying experience of going through treatment alone.

Machine learning algorithms can also be used in other areas, to a limited extent. For example, they can be trained to spot trends in clinical imaging, like x-ray scans, MRI scans or PET scans. This allows doctors to pre-determine what tests to run in order to get a better diagnosis and make the appropriate treatment choices. In addition, this same technology can also be applied to barium enema and iontophoresis. Again, this greatly reduces the risk of choosing the wrong treatment option and enables oncologists to make more informed decisions about a patient’s care.

Overall, advances in artificial intelligence are poised to revolutionize the healthcare industry. These improvements are not only likely to shorten the time it takes for doctors to deliver their services, they are likely to dramatically reduce the number of preventable deaths caused by diseases like cancer. However, it is important to realize that there are limitations to artificial intelligence and deep learning. Only recently have experts been able to complete challenging tasks using computers. Researchers and technicians will continue to seek new challenges and accomplishments in this field for years to come.
