Unlocking the human brain with the power of Artificial Intelligence
“The cloud has been a revolution for healthcare and neuroscience, with a lot of really good services for dealing with patient data, patient health records, and image processing.”
Omniscient Neurotechnology is the brainchild of the esteemed neuroscientists and neurosurgeons Dr. Stephane Doyen and Dr. Michael Sughrue.
The result is the surgical planning tool Quicktome, which provides neurosurgeons with a detailed map of the brain’s activity, known as a connectome, which is specific to each patient.
This allows surgeons to better plan treatments – especially those involving surgical intervention – in ways that won’t harm healthy brain functions.
Dr. Doyen explains how Quicktome works when treating a patient with a brain tumour.
“The cloud has been revolutionary for healthcare and neuroscience, with a lot of great services for dealing with patient data, patient health records, and image processing,” Dr. Doyen says. “A lot of projects like these don’t make their way to the doctor’s office, because of all the challenges you have to navigate and document, but we did it successfully.”
