Low back pain is one of the most common complaints. According to the World Health Organization, 80 percent of people suffer from low back pain at some point in their life. MRI is the most common method used to diagnose the cause of low back pain.
Turkey is among the leading countries in the world in the number of waist MRI scans. This causes doctors to work hard. The artificial intelligence developed by Turkish engineers reduces the workload of doctors by analyzing waist MRIs.
Artificial intelligence application was developed entirely with domestic and national resources.
Mehmethan Yumus, the Turkish engineer who developed the application; “In our conversations with specialist doctors and radiologists, they found that there is a great deal of MR reporting. We developed a program with the support of computer vision and artificial intelligence. The product we developed was financed by TUBITAK.”
An MRI analysis is done in an average of 17 minutes.
With the support of artificial intelligence, both the time is shortened and the margin of error is reduced.
Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Specialist Assoc. Dr. About Serdar Kesikburun artificial intelligence application; Before the radiologist sees the MRI report, artificial intelligence analyzes the image and gives it to him ready-made. In this way, both the physician’s report reading speed is increased by 25 percent and human error is minimized.” made the statement.
It is also aimed that the developed artificial intelligence application will take place in the international market in the future.
