Tech Healing

Qure.ai has developed artificial intelligence assisted tailored algorithms to help diagnose diseases and recommend personalised treatment.

Technology is changing healthcare delivery systems globally and Qure.ai, a Mumbai based start up, is at the forefront of this movement in India.

The company has developed artificial intelligence (AI) assisted tailored algorithms to help diagnose diseases and recommend personalised treatment plans, based on readings and interpretations of X rays and CT scan images. Qure.ai's software assists radiologists and doctors

Rao notes that one of the challenges with deep learning algorithms is that they do not generalise well, though over 15 different abnormalities can be detected from chest X Rays and head CT scans. Qure.ai's algorithms can detect abnormalities, localise and quantify them, as the datasets are based on millions of radiology scans, to come out with accurate and fully automated reports. Its reports have three dimensional information and that makes it easy for doctors to see the abnormalities.
