Huawei Cloud recently worked to develop and launch an AI-assisted quantitative medical image analysis service for Covid-19.
In this regard, the tech giant jointly worked with Huazhong University of Science & Technology and Lanwon Technology.
Due to large numbers of lesions in lungs and rapid changes, multiple rechecks and image reviews are required in a short period of time to diagnose coronavirus, significantly increasing the workloads of imaging doctors.
With Huawei Cloud's leading AI technologies such as computer vision and medical image analysis, the service can automatically, quickly, and correctly output CT quantification results to imaging and clinical doctors, alleviating the shortage of imaging doctors who can accurately diagnose COVID-19, relieving the pressures of quarantines, and reducing the heavy workloads of doctors.
The service also utilizes the powerful computing capability of Huawei Ascend series AI chips to output the quantization result of a single case in seconds.
"AI + doctor review" is dozens of times faster than manual quantitative image evaluation, which greatly improves the diagnosis efficiency.
The "AI + CT" medical image analysis service for COVID-19 is developed and constructed based on the HUAWEI CLOUD EIHealth-medical image analysis platform.
