A Joburg medical technology company has launched a new platform which helps doctors diagnose people with COVID-pneumonia. This platform has been added to its artificial intelligence solution for radiologists.
Usually, after doctors take X-rays of patients, the results can take several days. And that’s why Radify -- an online platform created by Envisionit Deep AI -- is a game-changer.
The Radify platform eliminates waiting for results and can also identify which patient is a high risk for contracting COVID-19 by simply analysing an X-ray of their chest.

IT’S TELLING that a country as developed as South Africa only got its first qualified paediatric radiologist in 2010. That specialist, Dr Jaishree Naidoo, believes that human capacity alone cannot solve the challenges the continent faces in that field. Now, together with co-founders Terence Naidu and Andrei Migatchev, Dr Naidoo is looking to take on the shortage of paediatric specialists with artificial intelligence (AI) through her medtech startup EnvisionIt Deep AI which was launched last year in January. — Read online — or download the PDF
