A new version of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered imaging and X-ray equipment for optimum results has been developed by MinoHealth AI Labs and partners to elevate healthcare delivery.
The equipment, named; “minoHealth.ai 1.4.1” is a more robust version over the previous one launched in November, last year, with
performance improvements to support chest pre-diagnosis via x-rays.
It is to assist general practicing doctors to obtain preliminary diagnosis as they waited for specialists (radiologists) reports.
Mr Darlington Akogo, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MinoHealth AI Labs, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, said the new equipment was far superior as it diagnosed 14 medical conditions, including Cardiomegaly, Pleural effusion, Aortic enlargement, Atelectasis, and Calcification.
It also points at exactly where each condition is, using bounding boxes, compared to the previous version of pre-screening, which only separated healthy images from diseased ones.
“If there are multiple diseases present, it would draw multiple boxes around the areas. It is also doing all of these in just seconds,” Mr Akogo said.
