Stanford University recently announced a crowdsourcing competition that aims to solve problems in biomechanics. Participants in the “AI for Prosthetics” challenge will build models that can predict how patients will walk after getting a prosthesis … Read more

AI Helps Detect Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is expected to be the leading source of new cancer for men and the second most frequent cause of death after lung cancer. It is also cancer that is very hard to detect, and small lesions can comprise just a fraction of 1% of the tissue surfac … Read more

AI Can Smell Illnesses in Human Breath

Researchers from Loughborough University, Western General Hospital, the University of Edinburgh, and the Edinburgh Cancer Centre in the United Kingdom, recently developed a deep learning-based method that can analyze compounds in the human breath and detect illnesses, including cancer, with better than-human average performanc … Read more

AI Automatically Detects Lung Abnormalities

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), led by visting fellow Dakai Jin, developed a deep learning-based system to automatically inpaint and detect pulmonary nodules, which are round or oval-shaped growths in the lung … Read more

Converting CT Scans into 2D MRIs with AI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is the gold standard in medical imaging. Unfortunately, it is not a viable option for patients with metal implants, as the metal in the machine could interfere with the results and the patients’ safety … Read more

AI Helps Doctors Detect MS In the Spinal Cord

A team of researchers from some of the top medical institutions in the world, developed a fully automatic deep learning-based system to detect multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions in the spinal cord and intramedullary from conventional MRI data … Read more
