Local researchers using artificial intelligence to lead the way in bedside lung imaging

Lawson Health Research Institute

A team at Lawson Health Research Institute are testing a new form of artificial intelligence (AI), paired with portable ultrasound machines, to image and identify lung concerns in real time, right at the beside of critically ill patients.



“Bedside lung ultrasounds in critical care can often have a large impact in identifying life-threatening conditions within minutes,” says Dr. Chintan Dave, Critical Care Medicine Fellow at LHSC and Western University. “We would like to see members of the healthcare team, like critical care nurses or respiratory therapists, be able to use AI to accurately determine the health of the lungs rapidly at the bedside. Employing AI into the clinical workflow, could improve access to immediate diagnoses and treatments.”
