Harnessing Information to Create Knowledge and Generate Actionable Intelligence
With the right data and technology, healthcare can rapidly improve. Machine learning can be trained to look at images, identify abnormalities, and find areas that need attention, which improves the accuracy of healthcare practices, including radiology, cardiology, and pathology. This method of data analysis will benefit both the family practitioner and internist while improving efficiency, reliability, and accuracy.
Teaching Machines to See
Machine vision software uses computational techniques to allow computers to analyze pictures, select features of interest, and use that data to reveal insight.
Models of Health
We live in three dimensions, so should our healthcare data. 3D medical imaging provides context and diagnostic value by giving clinicians more than a stack of images. When combined with additional data, which itself can be pulled from the models, it’s possible to create powerful visualizations, improve diagnostic accuracy, or more effectively educate patients.
Assessing Atrial Fibrillation Treatment Efficacy
Machine vision techniques can provide tremendous insight into how to help cardiac arrhythmia patients. Atrial Fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia in the world and impacts tens of millions of people. To effectively stop atrial fibrillation, it is necessary to isolate electrical signals in the left atrium. Incompletely isolating the signals results in failed treatment.
High contrast medical imagery combined with machine vision and segmentation techniques greatly facilitate the assessment of treatment efficacy. It can lead to the building of patient specific models to guide further intervention.
Machine Learning Allows the Building of Patient Specific Models
It can be difficult to apply new therapies because of how labor intensive it can be to create models outside of the research lab. Machine learning can be leveraged to segment images rapidly and efficiently without losing accuracy.
Medical imaging alongside computer vision, segmentation, and machine learning assessment can give insight to how far along the disease really is. MRI combined with image processing pipelines provide a powerful tool to inform doctors how to treat arrhythmias. Visualizations can help providers plan intervention and then to communicate findings and care plans to the patient. Over time, as more data is acquired, it is possible to even more effectively target therapy and predict outcome.
