Exciting potential—#AI reading X-rays to end TB. “The machine plus clinician is better than the clinician, and it’s also better than machine alone." - @EricTopol nytimes.com/2020/11/20/hea…

Happy to contribute to this nice piece by @apoorva_nyc on the potential for using digital x-rays & AI-based software to screen for TB, Covid-19 & other conditions. Software is no longer the issue. Expensive hardware is what I'm most worried about. nytimes.com/2020/11/20/hea…

Happy to see a hospital and physicians I know in a @nytimes story by @apoorva_nyc. Drs Ashita and Deepak are an inspirational couple. Memory: Saw Comet Hale-Bopp sitting outside that hospital. And yes, improved #TB diagnosis matters a lot. nytimes.com/2020/11/20/hea…

qXR app- #AI based tool allows you to scan chest X-rays. If it finds evidence of Tuberculosis (even Covid & others), it assigns a risk score. Drs can then perform confirmatory tests on high risk patients. Clinician+ AI gives great results. By @apoorva_nyc nytimes.com/2020/11/20/hea…

NEW: In Simdega, one of the poorest districts in India, the medical center is in a clearing of the forest, and serves tribals beset with poverty and alcoholism — even among the children. It's also where an AI based app is helping to diagnose TB nytimes.com/2020/11/20/hea…
