The Future of Medical Imaging


Advanced AI Can Tell Your True Age by Looking at Your Chest
An AI-powered model utilizes chest X-rays to help develop biomarkers for aging.

What if determining “your age” was based on your chest rather than your face? Scientists from Osaka Metropolitan University have crafted an advanced AI model that uses chest X-rays to precisely gauge a patient’s actual age. Importantly, when there is a disparity, it can signal a correlation with chronic disease.

This breakthrough in medical imaging paves the way for enhanced early disease identification and treatment. The research was recently published in the journal The Lancet Healthy Longevity.
