Medical Condition Discovery Engine (MCDE)
A suite of tools for gaining more accurate assessments of a patient’s health from medical tests.
Digital tools can discern much greater detail from patient scans than the human eye is able to see.
Using this, it is possible to identify potential problems earlier, track progression and changes, and help clarify a diagnostic path so that patients receive necessary care much earlier than current practice allows with less ambiguity.
The structure of the MCDE has three major components.
Each component is designed based on a medical need.
- The first component assesses scan data directly and determines structures within the body.
- The second component builds on information provided by the first, using this information to identify internal organs and tissues.
- The third component combines these results with patient-specifics, such as medical history, vitals measurements, age, weight, gender, etc., and gives an indicator as to the type of medical issue of concern. It also indicates which fields of medicine may need to be consulted.
Using MCDE, the patient’s scans can be automatically (and very quickly) run through the analytic suite, which would look for all possible anomalies within its library, and flag anything unrecognized.
This could be done with much greater discernment than physically looking at a 2D scan image, and in significantly less time.
Much like a child’s “hidden pictures” puzzle game, finding a specific item among a lot of other visual data is challenging (if it weren’t, those puzzles would hardly be fun).
But instead of asking doctors to personally scan every millimeter of every slice of a patient’s scan data, our software does this automatically and identifies anything unrecognized or recognized out-of-bounds.
In this way, our GI-pained patient may get quick relief for their immediate problem, but also may begin a regimen of treatment for a more serious illness (identified using MCDE) which, using current technology, might not be identified for years, and probably not until after symptoms develop.
This is a very clear improvement of the quality and length of life, and the bonus is, it will be at a lower medical cost.
