Breast Cancer Detection Made Easier With Artificial Intelligence

Currently, the detection of metastatic cancer cells in tissues and lymph nodes are all done by the work of highly skilled pathologists by analyzing them under a microscope to look for irregularities within them.  This can be a very time-consuming task for the doctors, and so researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Harvard Medical School collaborated to create an artificial intelligence form that could do this work them. The AI that the team has developed uses a type of deep learning in order to replicate the work of a human.  Their main aim in creating the AI was to teach it to be able to recognize patterns and structures within the cell.  And, by achieving a success rate of 92 percent, the team are well on their…
