An AI Program Saves the Life of Man in Israel

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

A patient at the Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya had his life saved thanks to an AI warning of intracranial bleeding. According to Israel Hayom, the resident of the city is a 50-year-old man who came in for a routine CT scan.

The reason for the scan was due to him complaining of strong headaches for a long period. Normally, the results of the CT scan would take several weeks before becoming available. However, due to an alert by the AI-based program in-house, it warned that the patient may have been experiencing intracranial bleeding.

Once alerted by the AI, doctors rushed to call the man to return to the medical center. Thankfully, the man was nearby and came right back. He was then operated on by staff who found the bleeding, saving his life.
