The use of computer vision for the analysis of endoscopic examinations began to be tested in the Moscow hospital named after Botkin. Olga Sharapova, a Moscow City Duma deputy, chief physician of the Vinogradov City Clinical Hospital, spoke about this.
According to her, this technology can improve the availability and quality of endoscopic diagnostics, as well as reduce the time to complete the study.
The doctor explained that the stressful work regime in which health workers function requires new solutions. At the same time, it is impossible to completely replace a doctor's examination and professional diagnostics.
“However, artificial intelligence can help a doctor navigate and pay attention to pathology, clarify exactly where to look for a problem. I believe that such technologies are especially important for young doctors, who do not always have the opportunity to consult with senior colleagues in a timely manner,”Olga Sharapova said.
She noted that testing is carried out on the basis of the endoscopy department of the Botkin City Clinical Hospital, which is one of the most powerful units for providing such care in Russia, according to the Moscow City News Agency.
