Hi,Amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic,HUAWEI cloud in collaboration with Huazhong University of Science and Technology and Lanwon Technology has recently developed and launched an AIassisted quantitative medical image analysis service to aid faster COVID-19 diagnosis.
The launch of the new service could play a major role in improving the infrastructure which can accurately and quickly detect the viral infection. This could potentially help curb further infections and other complications in time. The National Health Commission of China has now officially included the diagnosis solutions offered through the service alongside its own prescribed treatment and detection solutions, which were published back in 4th February 2020.
With HUAWEI CLOUD’s leading AI technologies such as computer vision and medical image analysis, the service can automatically, quickly, and correctly output CT quantification results to imaging and clinical doctors,
This is help to deal with the shortage of imaging doctors who can accurately diagnose COVID-19, relieve the pressures of quarantines and reduce the heavy workload for doctors.
The service also utilises the powerful computing capability of Huawei Ascend series AI chips to provide quantisation result of a single case in seconds.
In addition, with Huawei’s Ascend AI series chips, the service can output CT quantization results in seconds. Compared with the traditional methods that doctors use to manually draw ROIs for quantitative evaluation, this service significantly improves diagnosis efficiency.
