Radiomic Algorithm Predicts if Patient’s Cancer Can Return 10 Years After Treatment

 A new study by researchers at Penn Medicine (Philadelphia, PA, USA) has found that Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and an emerging field of medicine called radiomics — which uses algorithms to extract a large amount of features from medical images — could help to characterize the heterogeneity of cancer cells within a tumor and allow for a better understanding of the causes and progression of a person’s individual disease.

Google AI System Beats Doctors in Detecting Breast Cancer

 A team of researchers from Google Health (Palo Alto, CA, USA) have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) model which can spot breast cancer in de-identified screening mammograms (where identifiable information has been removed) with greater accuracy, fewer false positives, and fewer false negatives than experts. This can find future applications wherein the model could support radiologists performing breast cancer screenings. More...

AI Outperforms Radiologists in Detecting Tiny Brain Hemorrhages on CT Scans

 Scientists at UC San Francisco (San Francisco, CA, USA) and UC Berkeley (Berkeley, CA, USA) have developed an algorithm that performed better than two out of four expert radiologists in finding tiny brain hemorrhages in head scans. The algorithm could help doctors treat patients with traumatic brain injuries (TBI), strokes and aneurysms. More...

New AI Algorithm Predicts Which Breast Cancer Patients Can Benefit From Additional Therapy

 Researchers from the Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH, USA) have developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that could help better determine which patients diagnosed with the pre-malignant breast cancer (commonly referred to as stage 0) are likely to progress to invasive breast cancer and might benefit from additional therapy over and above surgery alone.
