Using AI in NHS Diagnosis: Apply for Funding

X-rays of arms and legs are among the most frequent diagnosis processes used by NHS Scotland, with around 5,000 procedures annually. Although injuries in these areas are often categorised as minor, misdiagnosis and mismanagement can hamper recovery and lead to financial cost. However, the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning could help create systems that prevent misdiagnosis.

Authors: Wu Y, Chen Q, Chen K, He F, Quan J, Chen S, Guo X Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent studies have shown that ultrasound-guided injection of glucocorticoids is superior to blind puncture methods. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate clinical efficacy of ultrasound-guided drug injection in the treatment of olecranon subcutaneous bursitis. METHODS: From June 2016 to September 2018, 45 patients diagnosed with obvious synovial effusion and treated with ultrasound-guided injection therapy for olecranon bursitis were included in this study. Under the guidance of ultrasound, the synovial effusion aspiration was performed and 2...

Conclusion: Considering the radiological report, no significance was found for the observed changes. Atelectasis was not the most frequently observed change. The predisposing factors for these changes were extreme prematurity, low weight, male sex, a poorly positioned endotracheal tube and the use of invasive mechanical ventilation.

Emergency diagnostics demand fast, easily available, and cost-effective procedures. The higher the accuracy of radiological imaging, the better it supports the surgeon in decision-making for further treatment. Cone-beam computed tomography has been proven to be a reliable tool in diagnosing fractures of the hand and distal forearm. It can be easily installed, has a high spatial resolution, and a potentially lower radiation dose when compared with multislice computed tomography or a series of plain x-rays.

Introduction: Elastic stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) allows for efficient reduction and stabilization of fractures of the tibial shaft in children and adolescents. However, for fractures of the distal third of the tibia, traditional ESIN could be inappropriate, thus compromising the stability and the healing of the fracture. The aim of this study was to present and to assess a new technique of modified ESIN to treat fracture of the distal third of the tibia, called divergent intramedullary nailing (DIN). Methods: We performed a retrospective monocentric study. All patients less than 16 years old, managed in our ...

Authors: Yao G, Zou Y, Wang J, Yu H, Chen T Abstract  The aim of this study is to present a fully automated registration algorithm that allows for alignment and errors analysis of the 3D surface model obtained from industrial computed tomography (CT) images with the computer-aided design (CAD) model. First, two pre-processing steps are executed by the algorithm namely, CAD model subdivision and representing models. Next, two improved registration procedures are applied including covariance descriptors-based coarse registration with a novel and automatic calibration, followed by a fine registration technique th...
