Artificial Intelligence Can Identify Breast Cancer Risk At 30 Times The Speed Of A Human

Doctors manually reviewing 50 mammogram charts took two people 50-70 working hours, but AI was able to review 500 in just a couple of hours. Not only does it expedite the diagnoses, AI also has 99% accuracy in predicting the risk of breast cancer.  In the USA, over 1.6 million biopsies are performed nationwide each year, and approximately 1 in 5 of these were unnecessary on cancer-free breasts. Currently, when mammograms fall into the suspicious category, a broad range of 3 to 95 percent cancer risk, patients are recommended for biopsies.
