Innovative artificial intelligence-based technology has recently saved the life of a patient at the Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya.
A resident of the city, the 50-year-old patient arrived for a routine CT scan – after complaining of strong headaches for an extended period – and after its completion, left.
The results usually take one-to-two weeks to arrive, but in this case, an alert by the AI-based program warned that he might have intracranial bleeding, prompting doctors to call the man – who was still near the hospital – to return swiftly.
He was operated on in an emergency procedure that saved his life.
The AI-based program - called Viz.ai – leverages advanced, FDA-cleared algorithms to analyze medical imaging data, like CT scans, providing real-time insights and automated assessments to accelerate diagnosis and treatment.
Galilee Medical Center's Dr. Dan Paz, who participated in the development of the program, lauded it for its life-saving abilities, saying that "without it, the patient would have probably come to us too late."
