Did you know the traditional stethoscope hasn’t changed in over 200 years?
Lung and heart sound analysis play a critical role in diagnosing respiratory diseases. Yet, despite all the technological advances we’ve made as a society over the past two centuries, the primary tool used to diagnose many respiratory diseases, the stethoscope has not been updated.
However, this is all changing, meet Tambua Health, the medical technology software, and services company leveraging the power of machine learning to conduct lung and heart sound analysis. And assist doctors with the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory diseases.
TensorFlow, an end-to-end open-source platform for machine learning, is one of the tools Tambua Health used to build their application. In addition to its machine learning capabilities, TensorFlow allows doctors to use the Tambua App offline without the need to connect to the cloud.
What are your thoughts on this new innovative approach to the healthcare industry? Would you want your doctor to be using the Tambua App at your next checkup?
