Skoltech researchers have trained a neural network to search for lung pathologies on X-ray images and come up with brief verbal descriptions to accompany them. This task is currently performed by physicians, and it takes several minutes to complete. According to the creators of the artificial intelligence solution, the technology lowers this time to about 30 seconds when no considerable text revision is required. In most cases, the radiologist merely has to confirm the suggested diagnosis—e.g., fibrosis, enlarged heart, or a suspected malignant tumor—or absence thereof. The study has been published in Scientific Reports.
