​Samsung applies deep learning to ultrasound device

Samsung has applied deep learning technology in its ultrasound examination device to help doctors correctly diagnose breast tumours, the company has announced. The deep learning algorithm, S-Detect, applied on the RS80A, uses around 10,000 cases of breast tumour examinations to assist doctors in lesion diagnosis. It analyses the size of the tumour, whether it is benign or malevolent, and the type of cells where the sonogram is reading, and allows for more precise diagnosis thanks to it being optimized for image cognition, Samsung said. Deep learning is a new area of machine learning research where a computer emulates the way the human brain draws out patterns from data and processes it. Latest news on Asia At trial, a diagnosis from S-Detect showed a “high-level of conformity” to those from biopsy,…
