Before, Google has released a preview of the AI-powered dermatology assistant tool. Now the official version is ready. The tool is native to Google Search and uses your phone’s camera to take three different pictures from different angles of the body part you are dealing with. The tool works not only on skin, but also on dermatological diseases of nails and hair.
After taking the pictures of that area of the body, the tool itself will ask you a few questions. These questions relate to your skin type, how long you’ve had the problem, and whether you’ve had any other symptoms. This will help the AI tool in your diagnosis. The tool displays information about each matching condition and photographic examples, as well as official information from a dermatologist. The database contains 280 dermatological diseases. It also uses many of the same techniques that are used to detect diabetic eye disease and lung cancer in CT scans.
