Over 1 billion people around the globe suffer from diseases and infection caused by parasites. For many of them, there isn’t a quick or efficient way to diagnose the disease they are fighting. Until now, they’ve been dealing with long wait times from distant labs and suffering through their pain. Now, medical clinics and teams, even in remote locations, have a way to diagnose and treat those people quickly and on-site.
The Artificial Intelligence developed by QMIRA™ is carefully trained to focus on a sample, scan it for signs of parasitic infection, analyze the findings, and provide a comprehensive report.
After the sample is inserted into Parascan™, the Artificial Intelligence begins taking photos that are scanned for parasites.
The Artificial Intelligence scans the photos for any signs of the parasites while discerning between parasites and other debris in the sample.
When the scan is complete, Parascan™ begins analyzing and measuring the degree of infection.
As Parascan™ completes the analysis, it also creates a comprehensive report which can then be used to diagnose and treat several different types of parasites.
With this Artificial Intelligence, doctors and other medical personnel can quickly scan samples of potentially infected people and diagnose diseases. Using Parascan™ to focus, scan, analyze, and report on the parasitic infections has the power to reduce the number of disease outbreaks around the world and reduce human reliance on medications.
In 2015, there were over 212 million diagnosed cases of malaria that resulted in 429,000 deaths. These cases are the result of the parasite Plasmodium being transferred from person to person by mosquitoes.
Approximately 40% of the global population lives in malaria-risk areas.
In Africa, 70% of malaria cases are resistant to cheap antimalarials.
Artificial Intelligence developed by QMIRA™ has the power to diagnose the parasite that causes malaria quickly and on-site. Removing the need to send samples to labs in other cities means helping people infected with malaria receive the treatment they need right away so symptoms don’t become severe. The technology can also be applied in a preventative manner that has the capability of stopping infections from turning into full-scale outbreaks. This solution is:
DOCTORS REQUIRED FOR DIAGNOSTIC REPORT
Parascan™ can accurately diagnose malaria. This means doctors can spend their time more effectively, increasing their impact.
MINUTES OR LESS FOR DIAGNOSTIC REPORT
Instead of sending tests to the lab and waiting for results to come back, anyone can run tests and get results back in minutes.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has a goal of reducing the cases of malaria 90% and eliminating it from at least 35 countries by 2030. With Artificial Intelligence, doctors and medical personnel can help reach those numbers. The technology developed by QMIRA™ provides a world-class solution that can easily be implemented in order to reach those target numbers.
When used on a global scale, this Artificial Intelligence can be used to radically lower the number of malaria cases and help eliminate the prevalence of the Plasmodium parasite. The technology is so quick, easy, and usable that we no longer need to wait for an outbreak, we can use it as a preventative means of diagnosing the infections before they turn into an outbreak. Because this technology is efficient and easy-to-use, medical personnel around the globe will have the ability to scan samples and diagnose patients in a matter of minutes.
