In a major positive development in national effort agianst COVID-19 pandemic, Lucknow based King's George Medical University (KGMU) has successfully developed an artificial intelligence (AI) powered radiological tool which can help in differentiating between the X-ray scans of COVID-19 patients and other patients, Asian News International (ANI).
KGMU has developed the tool in collaboration with Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University within a short span of 300 hours. Detailing the working of the tool, KGMU's vice chancellor Dr MLB Bhatt shared, "We have to feed the digital X-ray in computer. Then it tells whether there is any damage in the lungs due to COVID-19."
The tool developed by KGMU and DR APJ Abdul Kalam Medical University has the potential to bolster the nation's fight against COVID-19 pandemic at a time when the total confirmed cases on a pan-India basis has surpassed 1.9 lakh patients, with over five thousand patients having already succumbed to death.
Formerly known as Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University, KGMU was first established in 1905 as a medical school, and was later upgraded into a full-fledged medical university by the then Uttar Pradesh Government in 2002.
