Medical AI project BrainScan launched in Odesa to speed up brain diagnostics

BrainScan, a pilot telemedicine project, has been launched in Odesa. This is the first city in Ukraine where it has been launched. This is the first city in Ukraine where it started working. This was reported by the Ministry of Health on Facebook.

«Ця система працює на базі штучного інтелекту і значно пришвидшує процес діагностики захворювань або ушкоджень головного мозку, коли час є критичним фактором», – йдеться в повідомленні.

The neural network analyzes computed tomography images automatically and detects pathological changes. Within 5 minutes after the program processes the image, the doctor can decide on further treatment.

“The use of artificial intelligence to analyze CT brain scans within the project has shown good results. Odesa’s experience of using a neural network to diagnose patients is now being used in the frontline city of Kramatorsk in Donetsk Oblast,” the Ministry of Health added.

Recently, Lookout, an artificial intelligence-based app designed to make everyday tasks easier for visually impaired people, became available in 11 new languages. One of them is Ukrainian.
