The success of a surgical procedure depends fundamentally on the prior knowledge of the surgeon summarized in the ability to make critical decisions and the technical skills necessary to perform each surgery.
The critical decision -making capacity in surgery depends mainly on three parameters.
– Situational assessment
– Take actions based on the surgeon’s previous approach
– Reassess the action taken once the impact of it has been seen.
Artificial intelligence in medicine has been used in several fields and with different objectives.
Static image analysis is one of the potential uses of artificial intelligence, the current applicability in radiology, pathology and dermatology is growing rapidly.
