Hybrid DCN_DNN

Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Identify Wound Etiology – 
A Preliminary Study

Innovations in Wound Healing Annual Conference. Dec, 2018.

“The proposed hybrid model achieves an accuracy of 94 % in differentiating burn, pressure injury, venous ulcer, and diabetic wound. This early application of artificial intelligence on etiology identification demonstrates the potential of AI in wound care. Future work will focus on improving the robustness and generalizability of the DCN/DNN hybrid model with more images and data augmentation, including the use of infrared image, depth map, and other clinical input.”

3-D Wound Scanner: A Novel, Effective, Reliable, and Convenient Tool for Measuring Scar Area

Burns Journal. Oct, 25, 2018 (epub ahead of print).

Highlights:
•Innovative use of portable 3D wound scanners to measure scar area;.
•Questioned the gold standard of the measurement of scar area, profile method, and showed this method is not suitable for measurement of hypertrophic scar area;
•Traditional methods are adequate for flat areas, however, errors are large in radial and angled areas. Scar was divided into three categories, flat, radial (cylindrical), and angled such as joints…

How IoT is Changing the Science of Medicine

How IoT is Changing the Science of Medicine

Automation is everywhere – in our phones, in our cars, in our homes. The Internet of Things (IoT) is an inter-operational network of physical devices, vehicles, and other electronic items. The network enables all of these devices to connect to one another and to the internet via wireless technology. This allows developers to add technology-based features, including the ability to deliver real-time experiences.

As of this year, IoT is starting to transform healthcare. More specifically, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is transforming how patients are being kept safe and healthy. The IoMT allows medical devices and applications to gather data and communicate, over a wireless network, with healthcare IT systems. A few examples of this connecting network include remote patient monitoring of chronic patients and tracking medication orders. Its main objective is to enable a greater range of services in device management, patient care, and service delivery.
