The CT calculator will be constantly updated with new data, which will improve the diagnostic accuracy. Not only Moscow doctors got the opportunity to connect to the service, but also doctors from the regions.
With the onset of the pandemic, digital services in the healthcare sector began to develop more intensively in the capital. For example, in Moscow they created new service help doctors – a CT calculator that helps a doctor make a diagnosis based on CT and MRI images, said in an interview with the Week in the City program on the Russia 1 TV channelSergei Sobyanin…
“And already without CT, one can say with a 90 percent probability whether a person has pneumonia or not, at what stage he has pneumonia,” the Moscow Mayor said.
To train the neural network, the historical data of laboratory studies, 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 made it possible to accumulate a large amount of information.
The CT calculator will be constantly updated with new data, which will improve the diagnostic accuracy. Opportunity connectnot only Moscow doctors received the service, but also doctors from the regions.
The CT calculator helps the doctor to predict the likelihood of a mild (CT 0-1), moderate (CT 2) or severe (CT 3-4) course of pneumonia and decide on further tactics of patient management. “This is especially important for those who need constant monitoring of their condition, that is, it is impossible for a person to have CT scan every day, it is also detrimental to health,” added the Moscow Mayor.
In some cases, if the system assumes a mild form of pneumonia, you can refuse to perform computed tomography. In others, an immediate CT scan or X-ray is performed and intensive treatment begins.
A unique service was created in Moscow to determine the severity of pneumonia by blood analysis
Among other developments in the field of health care is the electronic medical record. In it, Muscovites can see online the results of laboratory and instrumental studies, including the results of tests for coronavirus and immunity to COVID-19.
In addition, a telemedicine center began operating in the capital in 2020. In a pandemic, this decision was especially relevant, since it allowed thousands of remote consultations for coronavirus patients who are being treated at home.
Artificial intelligence has become an effective means of helping doctors. Now, as part of the experiment, services are being tested that process medical images obtained through computed tomography, mammography and radiography. Services based on artificial intelligence are connected to the unified radiological information service of the UMIAS. Research is used to diagnose lung cancer, pneumonia and other pulmonary pathologies, breast cancer, as well as to detect COVID-19. There are already the first results of the experiment: artificial intelligence has increased the quality and speed of diagnostics, doctors do not miss pathologies in a large stream of studies and identify patients with a high risk of developing diseases.
Artificial intelligence will help doctors perform 10 types of research
