AI in 2 times increased the number of successful transplants of organs

Transplantation, perhaps — this is one of those disciplines, which, as an extremely important branch of medicine because of many factors can make a qualitative leap forward. And even with a healthy donor organ, success is unfortunately not guaranteed because of graft rejection and many other problems. But the way out there and it can provide artificial intelligence.

A team of researchers from the US tested the data on kidney transplants and found that about 90% of transplants are unsuccessful or thwarted at the last moment. After this, the team used AI to process the information to include in the analysis a number of additional factors that lead as to the pre-operative rejection of the organ and to possible bad consequences.

The authors called the algorithm "exchange donors". The fact that the don to the kidney is not so easy, especially if there is no loved one, ready to sacrifice the body. In this case, the compatibility problem is particularly acute. Artificial intelligence takes into account all the factors of compatibility of organ donor and recipient, as well as key aspects that can affect the outcome of the operation and offers body to the person whom it is most suitable. As stated by the authors,

"working Principle can be compared with a chain. If one link is "not suitable", you can easily navigate to the next and find the most suitable. The method has already proven its efficiency for one of the most difficult groups — patients with chronic renal failure. The application of the algorithm allowed to increase the number of successful operations by 45%."
