GWANGJU, Nov. 5 (Korea Bizwire) — Chosun University Hospital in Gwangju announced on Sunday that it is using Watson for Oncology, a medical AI supercomputer designed by IBM Inc., for cancer treatment.
Once the information about a patient along with the preliminary diagnosis is entered, Watson delivers the optimum method of treatment by analyzing its vast databases.
Since 2014, Chosun University Hospital has been practicing interdisciplinary treatment where patients, guardians, and doctors engage in consultation to discuss further treatment depending on the progress.
After bringing in Jeolla Provinces’ very first Watson last September, the hospital has incorporated it into the interdisciplinary system to treat various types of cancer.
“Interdisciplinary treatment helped us better incorporate Watson into the treatment process,” said Prof. Bae Hak-yeon, the director of Chosun University Hospital.
“The hospital will make sure that regular updates are made to the program to provide quick and precise treatment to patients with cancer.”
