Artificial Intelligence is the next big step in healthcare technology, and Fujifilm is at the forefront of this movement. Our heritage in high-quality scanning and image processing allows us to train AI systems with decades of imaging data.
Our AI technology is improving outcomes for both the patient and the doctor by making the screening process safer and more accurate.
Artificial Intelligence describes the ability of computer programs and machines to mimic human intelligence. It can be further broken down into Machine Learning and Deep Learning.
Machine Learning involves a set of techniques that allow machines to improve at tasks over time. In radiology for instance, the machines get better at predictions as they continue to gather, classify, and examine large amounts of medical images.
Deep Learning is one of the techniques within Machine Learning. It allows the program to use ‘artificial neural networks’ to perform a task repeatedly. The program learns from every cycle and modifies its approach a little each time to produce more accurate results. In radiology, this technique helps in reconstructing images, enhancing the sharpness of low-resolution scans, and in early detection of cancers.
Fujifilm Healthcare’s vast data set of radiology images and decades of experience in the field has helped us develop advanced AI technologies that empower radiologists and doctors. Our AI allows them to read scans more efficiently and accurately, helping them make quick and intelligent decisions.
AI technology makes the screening process safer by allowing us to use ultra-low doses of radiation. Sharper images have previously only been possible with larger doses of radiation. At lower amounts of radiation the scans are blurry and difficult to interpret.
Our AI technology processes the low-dose scan and compares them to similar scans in Fujifilm’s vast library of imaging data. This enables us to sharpen the low-dose image and identify problems that would be missed by the naked eye.
Ultra Low-Dose Scan
A regular scan at ultra-low dose radiation is noisy and unclear, making it possible to overlook a problem.
The same scan with a higher dose of radiation reveals an abnormality.
AI Enhanced Ultra Low-Dose Scan
Our AI technology is able to sharpen the quality of the ultra-low dose scan to assist the doctor in early detection.

A computerized tomography scan, more commonly called a CT scan, allows doctors to see internal organs in much greater detail than a regular X-ray. It takes a series of X-ray images at various angles around your body and processes it together to create multiple cross-sectional images (slices) of the scanned body part.
