Artificial intelligence could outperform current models at predicting breast cancer risk

Written by Heather Jones, Future Science Group

Researchers from the Karolinska Institute (Stockholm, Sweden) have demonstrated that artificial intelligence (AI) could be used to help identify those at risk of developing breast cancer. The study, published in Radiology, revealed that AI can be used to extract more information from mammographic images, and could potentially lead to improved breast cancer screening. Currently, most breast cancer screening programs are based on mammography at regular time intervals. While it has been helpful in detecting cancer early on, this method is not optimized for cancer prediction on an individual level. One of the cancer risk factors currently identified in mammograms is...
