Artificial intelligence (AI) is being used in almost all aspects of life. The AI can assist medical consultants, primary health workers, and hospital administrators to understand analyze and interpret the medical data. The concepts such as data mining, image and signal processing, computer graphics, and machine learning are being utilized or being tried to implement in different health science areas such as dermatology, radiology, anesthesiology, psychiatry, surgery, and medical records . This article throws lights on some of the AI-related works that were carried out, especially in dermatology and radiology. This review has discussed its utility in other fields and the advantages such as faster execution, reliable results, and advantage over the manual process in certain aspects of healthcare. There are challenges, but further research and advances in technology in AI are likely to enormously benefit mankind.
