IIT-Mandi is a startup that has built a cost-effective Artificial Intelligence which is completely based on medical imaging solution that has the potential to revolutionize the early detection of respiratory abnormalities, hepatobiliary diseases, and genetic disorders in children.
The innovators at Dectrocel Healthcare have taken the initiative to develop a platform in which digital and analogue chest X-Ray images and pictures of children are uploaded. This algorithm is able to diagnose respiratory abnormalities that have significant mortalities inclusive of tuberculosis and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Saumya Shukla who is the co-founder of Dectrocel Healthcare and Research Private Limited has marked her words by saying that the help of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) in the context of health care can actively visualize the birth of super-intelligence. With the help of this approach humans and machines are having the expansion into the universe.
Hepatobiliary diseases and respiratory conditions such as malignancies, interstitial lung disease (ILD), COPD and lung cancer are global health crises and most of the existing diagnostic solutions are pretty much focused on late-stage diseases.
Saumya Shukla said that data is the latest oil and currency but these days the systems that make sense out of data will be the new oil and currency. The total population of India is around 1.4 billion and as per the medical reports, one in five people suffers from a chronic disease.
Saumya Shukla also said that most of these diseases do not include any major symptoms at the beginning. It makes imperative to diagnose the things at the preventive health care stage and enable early treatment. For the prevention of such kind of issues, Dectrocel Healthcare creates affordable diagnostic tools that can help in the early detection of such chronic diseases so that the patients can be cured with promising health outcomes.
The researchers claimed that developed tools will enable early detection that would be helpful in facilitating access to specialized health care, reduction in the cases of misdiagnosis and addressing unaffordability for the public at large.
Technology lends the ability to bring specialized-level health care to the remotest part of the world at an affordable price. At Dectrocel Healthcare, Uttar Pradesh can also be chosen to create the impact at scale, to begin with, and then replicate it nationally and at the global level.
