Technology is now applicable in every industry you might think of. The healthcare and medicine industry has not been left industry considering there are so many innovations that are now transforming medicine at a tremendous pace. Actually, the list of new innovative oncology solutions at the moment is endless.
Even though no one can predict the future, these innovations are certainly going to transform the healthcare industry for the better. In this article, we will share two innovations that will change healthcare and medicine.
Handheld Ultrasound Device
A high number of people from different parts of the world do not have access to medical imaging. However, this is not going to last that long considering you can now benefit from Butterfly iQ, a handheld ultrasound device. This go-anywhere gadget connects to an iPhone app and is available at a pocket-friendly price when compared to hospital machines.
Even though the ultrasound technology on a chip is not as efficient as big machines and won’t replace them in most parts of the world, it is certainly going to make scanning more routine. This action will go a long way in making sure you have access to medical imaging.
Cancer-Diagnosing Artificial Intelligence
Symptoms of lung cancer might prove hard to detect especially when it’s in the early stages. Actually, the symptoms appear in its later stages, when it’s already difficult to treat. Despite the fact that early screening of high-risk populations with CT scans has the capability of reducing the risk of dying, it comes with its own risks. However, artificial intelligence might be the perfect solution for all this.
Researchers are now in the process of developing an artificial intelligence system that outperforms human radiologists when it comes to diagnosing lung cancer. If the cancer-diagnosing artificial intelligence is successful, then most people are going to get treatment earlier enough.
The Bottom Line
These are just but some of the innovations that will transform the healthcare and medicine industry for the better. More are expected to come in the near future thus helping patients in their fight against different health complications.
