The Saudi Ministry of Interior's General Department of Medical Services continues to deploy a state-of-the-art medical capsule for security personnel during this year's Hajj season, 1445 AH.
This innovative capsule utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced communication technologies to conduct comprehensive medical examinations within just six minutes, the Saudi Press agency reported on Thursday.
