AI gives boost to brain injury assessments
May 21, 2020 -- Researchers from two top U.K. facilities have used an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to help accurately detect traumatic brain injury on head CT scans and evaluate the type of injury, quantify lesion burden, and measure lesion progression. They published their findings on 14 May in Lancet Digital Health.  Discuss
