Artificial Intelligence Reads Mammograms With 99% Accuracy

In Brief A team has developed artificial intelligence software that analyzes mammograms for breast cancer with 99 percent accuracy. This could help keep women from undergoing unnecessary biopsies, and would shield them from the agony of false positives. UNNECESSARY BIOPSIES A team from the Houston Methodist Research Institute says they have developed artificial intelligence software capable of analyzing mammograms for breast cancer with 99 percent accuracy. The technique involves scanning patient charts and cross-checking them with results from mammogram X-rays and clinical reports. “The imaging characteristics of breast cancer subtypes have been described previously, but without standardization of parameters for data mining,” according to the study published in Cancer. But their algorithm allows for a more comprehensive and accurate analysis that helps avoid false positives — a very common incident. Mammogram. Lester…
