X-ray scans powered by AI could slash waiting times for expert diagnosis

X-ray machines of the future will be powered by artificial intelligence to lighten the load on doctors and help spot chest abnormalities, new research shows.

WHAT IS AN X-RAY?An X-ray is a painless procedure that produces images of the inside of the body to detect a range of conditions.

A detector than picks up the X-rays after they have passed through and turns them into an image.

Dense parts of the body that X-rays find it more difficult to pass through, such as bones, show up as clear white.

X-rays may be used to detect broken bones, tooth problems, tumours, and lung or heart problems, to name a few.

Many people are concerned about being exposed to radiation during an X-ray the part of the body being examined is only exposed for a fraction of a second.

‘The results of this research shows that alternative models of care, such as computer vision algorithms, could be used to greatly reduce delays in the process of identifying and acting on abnormal X-rays – particularly for chest radiographs which account for 40 per cent of all diagnostic imaging performed worldwide.

A Global AI Expert Identifies The Skills You Need To Thrive In The Next 15 Years

According to Lee, in the next fifteen years, artificial intelligence will be able to “Technically” replace 40 to 50% of all jobs in the United States.

Lee makes an important caveat: just because AI can replace half of all jobs, doesn’t mean it will.

In our conversation, Lee told me about a personal health crisis that changed the way he thought about how AI and humans will co-exist.

Dr. Lee realized that AI will not undercut our value as long as we double-down on what makes us truly human.

Lee says the skills that make us uniquely human are ones that no machine can replicate.

It’s in the field of medicine where Lee sees a great opportunity for AI and humans to co-exist.

After thirty years of pioneering work in artificial intelligence at Google China, Microsoft, Apple and other companies, Lee says he’s figured out the blueprint for humans to thrive in the coming decade of massive technological disruption: “Let us choose to let machines be machines, and let humans be humans.”
