The Ministry of Health reports this, Ukrinform reports.

“Ultra-modern equipment has already been installed, and doctors have been trained to use the systems when diagnosing patients. Artificial intelligence carries out automatic analysis by reading X-rays and reflects areas of potential pathology in the form of a heat map of the lungs, which allows identifying the smallest areas of damage,” the message says.
