IIT-Mandi startup develops AI-based affordable solution to detect respiratory, genetic disorders

New Delhi:  An IIT-Mandi incubated startup has built a cost-effective Artificial Intelligence-based medical imaging solution that has the potential to revolutionise the early detection of respiratory abnormalities, hepatobiliary diseases and genetic disorders in children, officials said.

The innovators at Dectrocel Healthcare have developed a platform in which digital and analogue chest X-Ray images and pictures of children are uploaded and, in a few minutes, the algorithm is able to diagnose respiratory abnormalities that have significant mortalities such as tuberculosis and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Saumya Shukla, co-founder of Dectrocel Healthcare and Research Private Limited, said, “With AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning), especially in the context of health care, this epoch will see the birth of super-intelligence and, with it, humans and machines expanding into the universe.
