Elevating Healthcare with Computer Vision

May 3, 2022 —

When medical technology developers have access to a flexible and quick-to-market hardware, everyone is winning, from patients to providers. Below, we’ve gathered some of the most common questions related to computer vision, to help you better understand the technology behind MBX’s innovative computer vision building block, Kori.

What is computer vision?

As a field of artificial intelligence (AI), computer vision trains computers and systems to analyze digital images from cameras and video with the goal of drawing meaningful recommendations and actionable steps.

Advances in the computer vision field have led to an impressive 99% accuracy rate for object identification and classification, which helped countless industries advance by leaps and bounds in the last decade.

What is the difference between computer vision and machine learning?

As opposed to computer vision, which enables computers to see and understand imperceptible issues, machine learning empowers machines to draw valuable insights from data and make accurate predictions based on past experiences, just like humans.

How can the healthcare industry benefit from this technology? Can you give some computer vision examples?

In healthcare, the power of computer vision is best seen when evaluating patient scans for abnormalities such as cancerous tumors. What was once a time consuming, error-prone task is becoming a fast and accurate process that allows physicians to make assessments with lifesaving precision.

Aside from tumor detection, here are other computer vision applications in healthcare:

  • Health Monitoring
  • Lean Management
  • Medical Training
  • Remote Patient Monitoring

Who is leveraging the incredible computer vision benefits?

Some of the biggest health systems in the world are already experiencing the transformative effects of AI in healthcare. From medical imaging data that allows for early detection of abnormalities in the lungs, heart, and brain to post-surgery blood-loss tracking that helps reduce mortality rates, computer vision is driving innovation across the industry.
