Laboratory Introduction

With the advent of artificial intelligence AI, technological innovations in various fields are progressing, and application to the obstetrics and gynecology field, which was difficult to mechanize, is expected. In this research field, we will construct an automatic diagnosis system of fetal heart rate variability by AI, elucidate mother-infant ties by rhythm correlation analysis, and identify the delivery period. In the gynecology field, AI is used to estimate autonomic nervous activity and hormone balance using big data from a watch-type thermometer and heart rate monitor. From this big data analysis, we will solve the worries of women such as dysmenorrhea, menopausal disorder, endometriosis and uterine myoma development due to proper use of hormonal therapy.
