AI beats human breast cancer diagnosis:
A computer programme can detect breast cancer from routine scans with higher accuracy than human experts, researchers have said. This discovery could be the desired breakthrough we seek in the battle against the deadly killer disease. Breast cancer is one of the most popular cancers in women, with over 2 million new diagnoses in 2019.
UK lead at Google Health, Dominic King, had this to say, “The earlier you identify a breast cancer the better it is for the patient. We think about this technology in a way that supports and enables an expert, or a patient ultimately, to get the best outcome from whatever diagnostics they’ve had.”
