The CREAC framework structures evaluating gaps where existing health regulations may lack clarity for emerging issues of accountability. Explanation contextualizes the probabilistic nature of AI inferences and how general principles of medical negligence could have ambiguous application currently if erroneous AI contributions result in patient harm. Application to a hypothetical scenario assesses if adequate protections for appropriate integration exist across developers, systems, healthcare facilities, and practitioners under applicable interpretations of existing laws. Finding liability rules insufficient absent targeted AI governance, conclusions recommend amending Act 829 in key areas to codify expectations for responsible innovation and prevent ambiguity in liability.</p> <p>This work carries scientific novelty as one of the first structured jurisdictional analyses internationally of healthcare AI accountability gaps through a legal lens. Practical significance lies in setting the stage for strengthening protections in Ghana through proposed statutory reforms that reduce uncertainty around this crucial area for quality care. The method and recommendations offer a model for modernizing medical negligence law and AI policy amidst ongoing digitization in healthcare worldwide.</p> 2024-02-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 George Benneh Mensah, Pushan Kumar Dutta Machine learning Helps in Quickly Diagnosis Cases of "New Corona" 2024-01-03T09:23:52+00:00 Maad M.

Praveena M. Venkatesan K. Ramamoorthy J. Jasmine Hephzipah <p>Breast cancer is a common type of cancer in women, denoted by the uncontrolled growth of cells in breast tissue. Thus, manually detecting breast cancer is time-consuming and necessitates automated systems. Existing breast cancer screening methods often have limited efficacy and may delay detection and complicate the individual treatment planning process. However, early detection of breast cancer can be costly and impact the accuracy of diagnosis. To address this issue, we introduce a Darknet-53 Convolutional Neural Network (darknet-53CNN) approach for classifying breast cancer images and improving precision. Furthermore, we utilise the Contrast-Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) technique to pre-process breast cancer images to enhance image quality. Furthermore, we evaluate the intensity level of pixel images by feature extraction using the Haralick Grey-Level Co-Occurrence Matrix (HGLCM) technique. Finally, the DarkNet-53 CNN method improves the accuracy of detecting breast cancer and classifying images as benign or malignant. The proposed algorithm evaluates the specificity, sensitivity, accuracy and precision of predictive test results based on the classification of breast cancer images. Moreover, the accuracy of the proposed method has increased to 95.6% compared to the methods obtained from previous approaches.</p> 2024-06-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 R. Rajkumar, S.

As advanced algorithms supplement or replace human judgments, dated laws centered on individual practitioner liability struggle to contemplate emerging negligence complexities. Act 857 lacks bespoke provisions for governing this new era beyond outdated assumptions of human-centric care models. With AI projected to transform medicine, proactive reforms appear vital to enable innovation gains while upholding accountability.</p> <p>Through an IRAC legal analysis lens supplemented by case law spanning from the United States to Ghana, this paper demonstrates how judiciaries globally are elucidating risks from legal uncertainty given increasingly autonomous health technologies. Findings reveal governance gaps impeding equitable access to remedy where algorithmic activities contribute to patient harm. Calls for stringent training, validation and monitoring prerequisites before deploying higher-risk AI systems signal a reframed standard of care is warranted.</p> <p>Detailed recommendations to modernize Act 857 and adjacent regulation are provided, covering practitioner codes, product safety, ongoing evaluation duties, and crucially, updated liability rules on apportioning fault between disparate enterprises enabling flawed AI. Beyond protecting patients and practitioners, enhanced governance can boost investor confidence in Ghana’s AI healthcare ecosystem. Ultimately astute reforms today can reinforce innovation gains tomorrow across a more ethical, accountable industry.</p> 2024-01-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 George Benneh Mensah Evaluating ChatGPT performance in Arabic dialects: A comparative study showing defects in responding to Jordanian and Tunisian general health prompts 2024-01-03T22:19:51+00:00 Malik Sallam Dhia Mousa <p><strong>Background: </strong>The role of artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly recognized to enhance digital health literacy.

Gopalakrishnan S.Ravi Chand <p>Lung disease prediction is a critical issue in today's world. However, in the past two years, the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has a broad range and, in a limited percentage of people, a notable effect on the lungs. In the past, the fuzzy logic method has been used to classify lung disease prediction, but it has faced challenges such as difficulties in identifying segmented regions and output inaccuracies. To solve the issue Convolutional neural networks are used in machine learning to predict lung condition. The preprocessing based weighted average filter gives greater weight to the central value, making its contribution more significant than that of other values and can regulate the degree of image blurring. The process of segmenting based on region split and merge techniques involves separating one or more areas or entities in an image according to a size of m by n at one level of a threshold value. This segmented in multiple sub-regions of the same size, indicating a fundamental representational structure, from that Image classification using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) is a type of neural network specifically designed to extract distinct characteristics from segmented data. They are often used in tasks such as lung disease prediction and recognition due to their ability to identify intricate details in clustered data. The approach was evaluated using the MATLAB tool, a novel CNN with multiple image processing technique in our experiment to efficiently classify lung illnesses under typical circumstances, the average accuracy increased up to 97%. The results of this study show significant improvement in the prognosis of lung prediction in medical filed.</p> 2024-06-01T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 M.Sahaya Sheela, G. Amirthayogam, J.
