Chest X Ray
The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR) have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm to learn about patients affected by Covid-19. In this, it can be detected from the chest X-Ray whether the person is suffering from Covid-19 or not.
According to its developers, the tool is named Atman AI which is used for chest X-Ray screening and has got an accuracy rate of 96.73 percent. CAIR, DRDO Director Doctor U.K. Singh said that the development of this diagnostic tool was part of DRDO’s efforts aimed at helping physicians and front-line workers learn and treat Covid-19 patients as quickly as possible.
He said that due to limited testing facilities for Corona virus, it was necessary to develop AI tools so that the disease could be detected through X-rays. This tool will help to detect Covid-19 by automatically detecting radiological findings in seconds. Especially in emergency cases, doctors and radiologists will be able to know about the case more effectively.
The cost to get the test done will be less
The team working on this tool said that by using X-rays, the Covid-19 can be detected more effectively and the cost will also be reduced. The developers said that due to easy access to CT scan, it can be quite beneficial for people living in small cities of the country. He said that this will also reduce the pressure on the radiologist and the CT machines being used mostly for COVID-19 patients will be used for other patients. The developers said that to develop this tool, chest X-rays of RT-PCR positive patients have been used. Tests have been done at different stages of the disease.
This report said that it will be used by 5C Network, the largest digital network of radiologists in India, in collaboration with HCG Academics. It will be used in about 1000 hospitals across the country.
