Artificial Intelligence: hope for hospitals

Dear Sir or Madam,

Many hospital physicians reach the limit of their capacities. Not only because there are more and more patients, but also because new data is created by every patient. But who is still able to wrap their head around it? Artificial Intelligence could sift through data and structure it for physicians in the future. Learn in our current video how this can help to free up more time for patients.

Enjoy watching!

Endoprosthetic surgery: modern and traditional approaches

Topic of the Month

Image: doctor consoles patients before surgery; Copyright:
Surgery is required if you need an artificial joint. Patients and doctors must select the type of surgery that’s best suited and choose between robot-assisted, traditional or minimally invasive surgical approaches. Post-operative risks should be kept to a minimum, while benefits should outweigh any possible complications.

AI in the hospital – Possibilities and limits


Image: Preview picture of video
A hospital generates several thousands of gigabytes of data each day. The growing flood of data is no longer manageable for doctors. The great hope: artificial intelligence. Radiology is the main beneficiary. Dr. Felix Nensa from Essen University Hospital and Dr. Peter Langkafel from the Digital Health Factory tell us more about the possibilities and limits of learning machines.

AI-analyzed blood test for neurodegenerative disease

Laboratory Equipment, Diagnostica, Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology

Evaluating the effectiveness of therapies for neurodegenerative diseases is often difficult because each patient's progression is different. A new study shows artificial intelligence (AI) analysis of blood samples can predict and explain disease progression, which could one day help doctors choose more appropriate and effective treatments for patients.

AI can jump-start radiation therapy for cancer patients

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

AI can help cancer patients start their radiation therapy sooner by instantly translating complex clinical data into an optimal plan of attack. Patients typically must wait several days to a week to begin therapy while doctors manually develop treatment plans. But new research shows how enhanced deep-learning models streamlined this process down to a fraction of a second.

Wearables: self-moisturizing smart contact lenses

Research & Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Electromedicine, Medical Technology

Researchers at Tohoku University have developed a new type of smart contact lenses that can prevent dry eyes. The self-moisturising system, which is described in the journal Advanced Materials Technologies, maintains a layer of fluid between the contact lens and the eye using a novel mechanism.

Artificial Intelligence serves the precise diagnosis of diseases, simplifies operations, enables telemedicine. However, not only diseases, but also chronical wounds have to be treated by different physicians over a long period of time. This is where the Italian start-up Omnidermal Biomedics comes in with a noninvasive AI-based innovation.
