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...

Conclusion: When performing MEA, it is important to perform detailed examinations and careful monitoring of post-operative progress bearing in mind potential malignant uterine diseases. PMID: 32619375 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: We demonstrated a workflow for HIFU treatment of the porcine pancreas in-vivo under MRI-guidance. This development bears significance for the development of MR-guided HIFU interventions on the pancreas as the pig is the preferred animal model for the translation of pre-clinical research into clinical application.

Conclusion: RFA-EMT, a new technique, is safe and effective for women with HMB or AUB for which medical therapy has failed. PMID: 32619371 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Li Y, Wang D, Li X Abstract Lung cancer has attracted a lot of attention because of its high morbidity and mortality. The emergence of RFA provides a new treatment for unresectable NSCLC patients. In addition to killing in situ lung tumors, RFA also provides new immuno-activated antigens, for the treatment of lung cancer. It changes the tumor microenvironment and activates the entire immune system of patients. The peripheral blood cell count is easy to achieve and the blood cells are important in tumor immunity, which changes after RFA. On the one hand, the changes in blood cells identify the immune change...
Authors: Yan L, Luo Y, Zhang M, Xiao J Abstract Purpose: To compare results in patients treated with additional radiofrequency ablation (RFA) after clinical evaluation or vital volume (Va) increase.Methods: Forty patients with 42 benign thyroid nodules who underwent additional RFA were evaluated in this retrospective study. According to the different indication for additional RFA, 18 patients were divided into Vv increase group (V group) and 22 into clinical evaluation group (C group). Patients were followed up at 1, 3, 6, 12 months and every 12 months thereafter by conventional ultrasound (US), contr...
Conclusion: CBCT-guided RFA of lung tumors is a relatively safe procedure with acceptable morbidity. PMID: 32619365 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
