AI-Driven Muscle Metrics Aids the Growth Standards for Kids

"Pediatric cancer patients often struggle with low muscle mass, but there is no standard way to measure this. We were motivated to use artificial intelligence to measure temporalis muscle thickness and create a standardized reference," said senior author Ben Kann, MD, a radiation oncologist in the Brigham's Department of Radiation Oncology and Mass General Brigham's Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Program. "Our methodology produced a growth chart that we can use to track muscle thickness within developing children quickly and in real time. Through this, we can determine whether they are growing within an ideal range." Advertisement Lean muscle mass in humans has been linked to quality of life, and daily functional statu...

AI’s Flourishing Role in the Evolving Landscape of Medical Devices

The global market for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the medical devices industry is set to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29.1 per cent from $336 million in 2023 to $1.2 billion in 2027, according to a report released on Wednesday. The report by GlobalData, a data and analytics company, showed that it's driven by the demand for healthcare systems to reduce time, costs, and missed detections when diagnosing a growing number of patients with complex profiles."A common use of AI in healthcare has been in diagnostic settings, where the speed and accuracy of diagnosing difficult-to-identify image abnormalities by the human eye are flagged by AI algorithms," said Brian Hicks, Senior Analyst of Medical Devices at GlobalData, in a statement."The consequence of this is th...

New AI Algorithms for Predicting Sudden Cardiac Death

concern, contributing to 10% to 20% of overall mortality. Traditional approaches have often struggled to pinpoint high-risk individuals, particularly on a personal level, making this discovery profoundly impactful. Lead author Xavier Jouven, a distinguished professor of cardiology and epidemiology at the Paris Cardiovascular Research Center, Inserm, and the University of Paris in France, introduced an innovative approach that transcends the conventional focus on cardiovascular risk factors. This approach encompasses all medical information available in electronic health records, potentially revolutionizing our understanding and management of sudden cardiac death.
