In Clinical spine surgery

Artificial intelligence is an exciting and growing field in medicine to assist in the proper diagnosis of patients. Although the use of artificial intelligence in orthopedics is currently limited, its utility in other fields has been extremely valuable and could be useful in orthopedics, especially spine care. Automated systems have the ability to analyze complex patterns and images, which will allow for enhanced analysis of imaging. Although the potential impact of artificial intelligence integration into spine care is promising, there are several limitations that must be overcome. Our goal is to review current advances that machine learning has been used for in orthopedics, and discuss potential application to spine care in the clinical setting in which there is a need for the development of automated systems.
