Artificial intelligence (AI) has increasingly been permeating many industries in the last few years, and among them is the medical devices industry. Like in many other industries, AI is particularly useful in accelerating the process of time-intensive and resource-intensive tasks, as well as aiding in decision-making processes. The beneficial impacts of AI in medical are thus far-reaching with great potential.
A common use of AI in medical has been in diagnostic settings, using the speed and accuracy of AI algorithms in diagnosing difficult-to-identify image abnormalities missed by the human eye. The consequence of this is that more patient profiles can be reviewed while also minimising any potential misdiagnoses.
