Transformational Tech

An artificial intelligence (AI) seizure detection system. Esophageal endoscopy without general anesthesia. Spine surgery navigation with machine-learning cameras. As technology continues to advance, Le Bonheur physicians are taking full advantage of the benefits that it can have for children.

“The utilization of cutting-edge technology is a necessary feature of comprehensive children’s hospitals like Le Bonheur Children’s,” said Jon McCullers, MD, chair of Pediatrics at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC). “The top children’s hospitals drive the field forward through a combination of improvements in clinical care, training the next generation of physicians and research.”

As technology evolves, it continues to advance care of kids, including advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies which are studied at UTHSC and Le Bonheur, says McCullers. Continued work in technology improvements will create new pathways for treatment and diagnosis. Le Bonheur Children’s physicians are paving the way for the future of pediatric health care through their use of technology innovations and search for new ways to help families and kids through technology.
