Researchers of Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), in collaboration with the Almazov National Medical Research Centre, developed an artificial intelligence system for analyzing endoscopic images (mucous membranes of organs). Such an approach is required for conducting mass screening studies, as well as for examining patients in remote settlements in conditions of lack of hi-tech medical equipment.
SPbPU researchers were able to apply artificial intelligence methods to analyze medical images obtained by the specialists of Almazov National Medical Research Centre. Scientists developed a software to help clinicians to identify various diagnostic conditions. “One of the main advantages of our system is the ability to automate diagnostics during mass screening examinations. This system will eliminate the possibility of subjective evaluation of medical images. This is a chance to receive qualified medical consultations in remote regions of Russia,” said Elena Velichko, Director of the Higher School of Applied Physics and Space Technologies SPbPU.
Researchers analyze the images and mathematically describe the
