The world is facing the global crisis of pandemic. In this situation health care facilities facing problems like staff shortages and overwhelming patient loads. Intense increment in loads of patients tends to work on for compensation of lack, this leads to finding the methods which help to fastrack the diagnosis process. Researchers from various fields working on developing the methods and devices which help to Fastrack and accurate the diagnosis process.
Approval of the invention and research depends on the accuracy of results and ease in its application. Conventional diagnosis methods like Polymerising chain reaction (PCR) are having better results accuracy but the time required for the diagnosis of sample is more. So far in an emergency situation, it is often difficult to check more samples in less time. Researchers got a solution to this problem in terms of new technology.
AI (artificial intelligence) is a booming area of research in various fields. The pandemic becomes the gateway for the adoption of AI in health care.
Rizwan Malik a lead radiologist at Royal Bolton Hospital run by the UK’s National Health Services (NHS) always having an interest in AI systems. He saw it promising to make his work much easier.
Malik decided to design a clinical trial for showing the abilities of that system. He analyzed the qXR is the most effective X-Ray system run on AI technology from the company named Qure.ai. which is located in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.
Mr. Malik appointed his trainee radiologist to handle various X-Ray samples. During the period of trial, Mr. Malik consistently checks for the opinions to match with his own, if theses opinions, match with his own then he decides the resulting opinion.
For the approval of this system. it took multiple reviews from health facilities and NHS committee for a few months of trials.
Testing of samples with PCR machines costs more and takes time, as there is a shortage of PCR machines, therefore according to the health professionals Chest X-Ray is the best tool for diagnosis of COVID-19
Modern researchers identified the different lung conditions in sever COVID cases, AI becomes the faster and best way for the diagnosis of diseases but it does not follow the conventional diagnosis methods which bring the patients in fear and harm.
From that, we get an idea that in future AI can be implemented in various fields of health care systems. In this global pandemic, crisis researchers started working on AI for its implementation in technical and non-technical areas. AI helps us to reduce human effort and increase the accuracy of results as compared to the results obtained by conventional methods.
As we know AI becoming an important part of technology development and it seems to be an intelligent way of doing work. AI-based X-Ray is an example of the implementation of advanced technology in health care. Like this lots of research and implementation of AI in healthcare are possible, in future if we subject to a global crisis like this again then it’s important to start taking preventive steps from now to avoid critical situations. To avoid such a situation, its important to focus not only on technology but also on the lifestyle of human beings.
