AI is going to treat brain diseases

September 07, 2021 | 3 minutes read

Artificial Intelligence  (AI) based technology will aid in monitoring electronic signals thus helping to treat networks of brain diseases.

Artificial Intelligent (AI)  has recently helped in the development of a new type of algorithm called basis “profile curve identification”.This technology can help in determining the interaction of the brain region with each other. Eventually aiding the doctors in treating several brain diseases.

This can help in the treatment of patients with Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression. AI-based software and technologies have helped the healthcare industry in treating patients better. This technology checks the electrical signals in the brain and the interaction of different brain regions that helps the doctors in the placement of electrodes for stimulating devices to treat brain diseases.

Healthcare software, ML, and AI-based technologies are rapidly changing the landscape of the healthcare industry. From storing patient’s data and suggesting treatments to detecting brain diseases AI is incessantly making healthcare treatments better. Artificial Intelligence can be used in the detection of brain diseases in a way that was never possible before.

AI to treat brain diseases by improving brain stimulation

Kai Miller, M.D., Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic neurosurgeon and the principal scientist of this project said:

“As new technology emerges, this type of algorithm may help us to better treat patients with epilepsy, movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease, and psychiatric illnesses like obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression.”

He further said:

Our findings show that this new type of algorithm may help us understand which brain regions directly interact with one another,  this, in turn, can help guide the placement of electrodes for stimulating devices to treat network brain diseases.

Technology Altering the Healthcare Landscape:

Indubitably, the advancement in the field of technology has impacted the healthcare industry too. And with no doubt, the application of technology in the healthcare industry is seemingly endless. For administrative purposes to storing patient data healthcare software are facilitating the healthcare professionals and doctors. Healthcare industry no doubt has become more faster and efficient in its tasks with the implementation of technologies. Other than healthcare software the Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are also transforming the industry on a large scale. Undoubtedly, we are in an era where the healthcare industry is highly dependent upon AI technology and the world is reimagining healthcare with endless possibilities. The Healthcare industry with technology is a growing market as hospitals and healthcare units are moving towards these healthcare solutions for efficiently carrying out their tasks.

The global healthcare information technology market is estimated to reach 172.3 billion by 2026.
