Chest X-Ray Algorithm on Par with Radiologists for Tuberculosis Detection
The performance of a new artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm used to assess chest X-rays for the presence of tuberculosis was virtually equivalent to that of radiologists.
In a study published Aug. 3 in Radiology, a team of investigators from South Korea shared the results of how well their algorithm evaluated these scans. Chest X-ray is the go-to scan for detecting and assessing tuberculosis.
Finding an effective and efficient way to analyze these scans quickly is critical, they said. The countries most affected by the disease are also ones that are least likely to have enough providers ...
