Artificial intelligence (AI) is an incredible tool that can achieve some amazing results if used correctly. Perhaps one of the most groundbreaking uses for AI is in medicine and advancements could change the world of medicine forever.
AI is relevant to so many different aspects of life and the general public even has access to it at this point. There are many different versions of AI out there and tailoring them to be used within the medical sphere has been incredibly helpful.
One way we can utilise AI in medicine is to help with detecting and diagnosing diseases. AI can be used to minter and observe patients around the clock. This helps to reduce the need for doctors and nurses to be constantly monitoring patients.
AI is also able to collect information about the patient and therefore detect issues as they arise, meaning doctors can be alerted to signs of disease early and help to treat it. This constant monitoring of patients could help in catching issues earlier and therefore treating them better.
AI can also be used in clinical imaging. AI is able to analyse images and locate and detect signs of various conditions such as cancer.
This is a great advancement as AI is able to study these images far quicker than a human would be able to, which can help in speeding along the process of imaging analysis and therefore diagnosis.
Another way AI can be used in medicine is by improving the efficiency and organisation of clinical trials. AI is able to quickly store and analyse medical results and can find information far quicker, meaning clinicians wouldn’t have to spend as long searching for the correct results and medical code.
AI is also able to detect similarities in results far quicker and compile the similarities and differences in patient responses to new drugs and vaccines meaning trials could be completed much more quickly and efficiently.
