What Has A.I. In Medicine Ever Done For Us? At Least 45 Things!

Remember Monty Python’s brilliant Life of Brian movie scene where the Palestinian insurgent commando, planning the abduction of Pilate’s wife in return for all the horrors they had to endure from the Roman Empire, asks the rhetorical question: what have the Romans ever done for us? With the hype and overmarketing, not to speak about the fears around A.I, we asked the same question. What has A.I. in medicine ever done for us? Well, we found at least 45 things. I have 45 responses to the pressing question on everyone’s mind who is interested in healthcare but tired of the hype or the doomsday scenarios around A.I.: what has this technology ever done for us? Look at how smart algorithms transform the diagnostic process! A.I. can support the early detection of atrial fibrillation. A.I. helps with the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. Coupled with a wristband, A.I. predicts epileptic seizures in children. A.I. built into an app helps diagnose autism in kids. A.I. powers a tool for recognizing sleep disorders. A.I. tracks insulin doses, quantifies blood glucose levels, and automatically sends the data to the paired app. A.I. assists healthcare professionals in the management of Type 1 diabetes. A.I. detects and quantifies coronary artery calcification. A.I. vision screening system tracks eye movements for identifying visual tracking impairment. A.I. powers symptom-checker chatbots, such as Symptomate, Ada Health, or Your.MD. A...

Publication date: Available online 18 September 2019Source: Biosensors and BioelectronicsAuthor(s): Lingling Li, Bing Han, Ying Wang, Jing Zhao, Ya CaoAbstractMembrane protein, a novel surface biomarker, plays an important role in cell recognition and disease diagnosis. Accurate recognition of membrane protein ensure high specificity of cell identification, while introducing signal molecules onto cell membrane is critical to achieve high sensitivity. In this work, we introduced a simple and universal signal labeling approach for cancer cell detection based on mild reduction-mediated cell engineering. This approach included...

We present the case of a male diagnosed with a giant hepatic artery aneurysm, which first presented with pain and hemorrhage due to a partial rupture of the aneurysm. After discarding treatment with a stent or surgery due to the wide extension, we chose to embolize the hepatic artery with coils. However, the progress was unfavorable after the procedure, with the appearance of liver failure that was resolved by an urgent liver transplantation. Giant hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms are an infrequent entity and their management is a great challenge. The diagnosis is usually delayed due to non-specific clinical signs and the li...

CONCLUSIONS: there is a significant deficit of gastroenterology departments capable of providing training in digestive ultrasound to residents, causing a significant training inequality. Until this situation can be reversed, the AEED has designed a training project in digestive ultrasound aimed at providing adequate training to all residents in gastroenterology as required.

Authors: Gutta A, Gromski MA Abstract Post-polypectomy bleeding (PPB) is one of the most common complications of endoscopic polypectomy. There are multiple risk factors related to patient and polyp characteristics that should be considered. In most cases, immediate PPB can be effectively managed endoscopically when recognized and managed promptly. Delayed PPB can manifest in a myriad of ways. In severe delayed PPB, resuscitation for hemodynamic stabilization should be prioritized, followed by endoscopic evaluation and therapy once the patient is stabilized. Future areas of research in PPB include the risks of direc...
