AI Powers Early Cancer Detection
Automated System Identifies Dense Tissue, A Risk Factor for Breast Cancer, in Mammograms
Researchers from MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital have developed an automated model that assesses dense breast tissue in mammograms — which is an independent risk factor for breast cancer — as reliably as expert radiologists.
Applying Deep Learning to Metastatic Breast Cancer Detection
“With these studies, we have made progress in demonstrating the robustness of our LYNA algorithm to support one component of breast cancer TNM staging, and assessing its impact in a proof-of-concept diagnostic setting. ”
Doctors Hope AI Colonoscopies Could Help Save Lives
Dr. William Karnes, a gastroenterologist at UCI Health, says the AI colonoscopy can identify up to 20 percent more abnormalities than a traditional test. The system uses an algorithm, analyzing 98 images a second as it searches for both formed polyps and even tissue that could become one. The program shows the results to doctors in real time during the procedure.
