The neural network can determine the state of the patient’s lungs by his blood test, oxygen saturation and the general clinical picture. This was announced by Sergei Sobyanin in my blog.

A neural network was created in the capital to assess the degree of lung damage. “CT calculator”developed jointly with researchers from the Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov.

The trained neural network will help the doctor predict the likelihood of a mild (CT 0-1), moderate (CT 2) or severe (CT 3-4) course of pneumonia and decide on further treatment tactics. In some cases, if the calculator suggests a mild form of pneumonia, you can refuse to perform computed tomography. In others, it is necessary to immediately hospitalize the patient, have a CT scan or X-ray, and begin intensive treatment.

To train the neural network, the data of blood tests, saturation, the general clinical picture of patients who were diagnosed with pneumonia with COVID-19 were compared with their results of computed tomography. Since March 2020, Moscow doctors have cured more than 500 thousand people. This allowed the accumulation of a large amount of data. As new data becomes available, the service will be constantly trained and improved.

The “CT calculator” is already built into the Moscow UMIAS system. Access to it is open doctors not only in Moscow, but also in other regions.

Digital services in healthcare began to develop more intensively in a pandemic. So, for 10 months, Moscow doctors have been using a special program for analyzing CT scans of the lungs to diagnose pneumonia with COVID-19. With the help of artificial intelligence technologies, it is possible to carry out diagnostics massively and accurately.

Other developments include an electronic medical record. Now Muscovites can see the results of tests and medical research, including those for coronavirus and immunity to COVID-19, information on doctor’s appointments and ambulance calls. More than 1.7 million citizens have already used the service.
