Fremont, CA: Every year, medical imaging saves millions of lives. It aids clinicians in the detection and diagnosis of a variety of ailments, including cancer, appendicitis, stroke, and heart disease. However, the healthcare business is continually striving to provide new advances to patients. As a result, stakeholders continue to invest in research into medical imaging technologies.
Medical Imaging Market Trends
Artificial intelligence and augmented intelligence are similar. True artificial intelligence is capable of simulating human-like "thinking" without the use of humans. Human interaction is still required for augmented intelligence. Augmented intelligence can enhance repetitive manual medical workflows with human input. Although the end results are comparable, the procedure is less mechanized.
Augmented intelligence is a prominent topic in healthcare that is being utilized to increase communication between radiologists and oncologists. Enterprise imaging, as it's also known, has far-reaching ramifications in the healthcare industry.
It is typically less expensive than more sophisticated artificial intelligence technologies. For many facilities, augmented intelligence is a more plausible access point.
Virtual and Augmented Reality & 3D Medical Imaging
Virtual reality (VR) is currently a worldwide phenomenon. This technology is not just for amusement. Virtual reality and 3D medical imaging have significant ramifications for the healthcare industry.
MRIs and CT scans are now so advanced that their 2D renderings need physicians to utilize their imagination. Physicians can now construct a 3D image of MRIs using new augmented reality technologies like EchoPixel True 3D. The image can then be examined using 3D glasses or a virtual reality headset.
The 3D image can be interacted with using pointing devices on the sides. The image can be rotated and cross-sectioned by medical personnel. This will help one visualizes and plan ahead of time for one's treatment. Physicians can even use a 3D printer to print these pictures.
In the same way that virtual reality (VR) provides three-dimensional visuals, augmented reality (AR) does as well. Images from augmented reality are combined with the real world. Machine learning and augmented reality are being used by companies like Proprio to assist surgeons. The technology has the ability to see beyond impediments and blockages that could obstruct a high-risk operation.
