IT in medicine: patient surgeon separated by more than 2,500 km.
Information technology has made it possible to make a significant step forward in many areas of life: education, work, household problems. Despite the fact that changes in medicine are happening at a more cautious pace, IT technologies, including artificial intelligence, have made it possible to significantly improve the quality and accessibility of medical services over the past few years.
A few years ago, China performed an “online surgery. The patient and the operating surgeon were separated by more than 2,500 kilometers. The doctor controlled the medical equipment using a videoconferencing terminal. This was made possible via high speed and minimal delays of information transfer in 5G cellular networks.
Along with data processing and transmission systems, artificial intelligence is used in medicine. Epol Soft performs the tasks of developing and maintaining services which:
- use neural networks on the basis of a dental image to form a display of jaws or individual teeth in 2D and 3D formats, and make it possible to view multiple ‘slices’ of a tooth with color correlation of the structure across tissues;
- are used for the diagnosis and rehabilitation of hearing and speech disorders. The system makes it possible to perform several types of examinations, store data and analyze the dynamics of changes.
The possibilities of IT and artificial intelligence in particular in medicine are much broader than the described cases. New horizons of information technology development include full-fledged assistants to the doctor with their own alternative opinions in complicated situations.
