Respiratory Medicine: How AI Can Improve Diagnostic Performance

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has made significant inroads in the field of medicine. AI technology has been used to develop diagnostic tools, therapeutic decision support systems, and even robots that can perform surgery.


One area where AI is beginning to have a major impact is in the field of lung sound analysis. Lung sounds are an important part of the diagnostic process for many respiratory diseases. However, interpretation of lung sounds is often subjective and can vary from one physician to another.


This is where AI can make a difference. By using machine learning algorithms, AI systems can be trained to recognise patterns in lung sounds that may indicate the presence of a particular disease.


One such AI system is Medsensio AI, which is a machine learning platform that has been specifically designed for the analysis of lung sounds.


In a recent study, Professor Hasse Melbye compared the performance of Medsensio AI to a panel of physicians in the detection of abnormal lung sounds. The results showed that Medsensio AI outperformed the physicians in accuracy for detecting pathologic lung sounds.


This is a significant finding as it demonstrates the potential of Medsensio AI to serve as a valuable tool for medical professionals in the diagnosis of common diseases. The study highlights the importance of AI in medicine and its potential to improve the accuracy of diagnoses.
