Scientists at the U.K.’s University of Cambridge and Imperial College London have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that can detect and classify different types of brain lesions, to gauge the impact of a head injury.
The researchers trained the machine learning AI on more than 600 computed tomography (CT) brain scans featuring lesions of different sizes and types.
When applied to another set of CT scans, the algorithm was able to classify the volume and progression of brain lesions.
Said Cambridge's David Menon, "We hope it will help us identify which lesions get larger and progress, and understand why they progress so that we can develop more personalized treatment for patients in future."
