There are various imaging techniques like X-Ray, MRI and CT Scan. All these techniques visualize the inner parts of the human body.
With the advent of deep learning technologies in data science, it is now possible to find such microscopic deformities in the scanned images. Through image segmentation, it is possible to search for defects present in the scanned images.
Other than this, there are also other image processing techniques like image recognition using Support Vector Machines, image enhancement and reconstruction, edge detection etc
Benefits for the company
Traditionally, doctors would manually inspect these images and find irregularities within them. However, it was often difficult to find microscopic deformities and as a result, doctors could not suggest a proper diagnosis.
