In China, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has deeply penetrated many industries, including medical care. This is motivated by the fact that 80 percent of medical data in China is imaging, which requires analysis and diagnosis based on the patient scans.在中國,人工智能已經深入到包括醫療在內的許多行業。醫療數據中,80%都是影像數據,而影像數據需要根據患者掃描結果進行分析和診斷。China faces two challenges with image processing: 1) there are not enough practitioners for human review to keep up with the growth of image volume, which currently expands by 30 percent per year; and 2) current computer-aided analysis lacks accuracy; manual review and subjective interpretation is inevitable.中國在醫療影像處理方面面臨兩大挑戰:1.沒有足夠的從業人員進行人體檢查以滿足圖像量的增長,目前圖像量每年以30%的速度增長;2.目前的計算機輔助分析的準確性尚未獲得驗證;人工審查不可避免。

AI in Medical Imaging Science醫療影像學人工智能The application of AI inferencing in medical imaging is complicated, requiring powerful processing capabilities for such challenges as data diversification, deep analysis, and complicated labeling. Medical image analysis requires support of 3D—or even 4D—deep neural network (DNN) architectures, which rely heavily on platform memory during processing. GPUs are often unable to handle the tremendous number of workloads required to process 3D and 4D image data. Therefore, medical teams may reduce the pixels of 3D image data and split them into multiple small blocks for sequential recognition. The TensorFlow* deep learning framework used to train algorithms on imaging data can benefit from optimizations for Intel? Xeon? Scalable processors.將人工智能應用于醫療影像推理是非常復雜的,需要強大的處理能力來應對數據多樣化、深度學習和復雜標記等挑戰。醫療影像分析需要支持3D甚至4D深度神經網絡(DNN)體系結構,在處理過程中嚴重依賴于平臺內存。GPU通常無法滿足處理3D和4D影像數據時所需的大量工作負載。因此,醫療團隊通常采用減少3D影像數據的像素,并將其分割成多個小的影像塊進行順序識別。用于訓練成像數據算法的TensorFlow*深度學習框架可以從英特爾至強可擴展處理器的優化中獲益。

The Intel Xeon Scalable processor family is well-suited for deep learning applications. It can directly read up to 384 GB of memory to accommodate fast access to imaging data for inferencing. Thus, it can better meet the requirements of AI-based CT image analysis compared to other AI processing technologies.


Intel? Optimization for TensorFlow* leverages the Intel? Math Kernel Library for Deep Neural Networks (Intel? MKL-DNN) to help improve performance on image data processing. Plus, it has customized 5,000 new features to provide better support for medical image analysis issues.
