NLP Logix and Mayo Clinic partner for AI analysis
Using advanced artificial intelligence, the data science team at NLP Logix and clinical team of Mayo Clinic, have produced a computer model which can identify white matter hyperintensities (WMH) in MRI images of the brain. The model was produced under the joint product development agreement between NLP Logix and Mayo Clinic announced this past July.
It took several months, massive amounts of data and a clinical team from Mayo Clinic to work with the data science team at NLP Logix to train the computers to identify and calculate the WMH. "It is very exciting work," said Matt Berseth, Co-Founder and Lead Scientist for NLP Logix. "To watch the technology evolve into an application which can accelerate clinical research and possibly lead to an improvement in patient care is very rewarding for our team. We've spent over six years building the deep learning infrastructure and team to be able to deliver on the promise of artificial intelligence and to see it in practical use is very exciting."
"Accurate assessment and longitudinal monitoring of WMH is of major importance in patients with cardiovascular risk factors such as diabetes and hypertension, cerebrovascular disease, and multiple sclerosis," says Vivek Gupta, M.D., neuroradiologist at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Florida.
