New software to help detect diseases

Differentiating between dengue, malaria and viral fever, which have similar symptoms, will be easier now as Indian doctors in collaboration with a Russian lab have developed a software which, it is claimed, not only detects accurately, but also saves time and is economical.

A team of doctors from Sir Ganga Ram Hospital and Lab Tech Ltd in St Petersburg Russia have developed analyser software programs would help in faster and accurate detection of the tropical illness.

‘It would also reduce the cost of treatment for the patients and minimise the use of antibiotics. Presently, doctors can’t differentiate between the three tropical illness,’ said Manorama Bhargava, chairperson, department of haematology.
