A University of Waterloo (UW) engineer help create AI-assisted technology to improve how doctors detect a bone fracture.

Omar Ramahi, a professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, is the lead researcher on the project and claims it could be a breakthrough for the medical industry.

He’s created a tool that can detect bone fractures without using radiation.

“Early diagnosis will allow doctors to assess what is needed to fix,” Ramahi said.

It can take time for a patient to get an x-ray, CT or MRI. The equipment is not readily available in ambulances or primary care centres. Patients often have to wait for an x-ray or scan at the hospital.

Ramahi said his idea creates a more portable and cost-effective alternative to what currently exists.

Ramahi uses a cow bone for the research. He pairs inexpensive wireless communication antennas with artificial intelligence. Two antennas are placed on …
