New AI algorithm for breast cancer screening

2018 22 Feb

Researchers in South Korea have developed a deep-learning algorithm to help with the detection of breast cancer. They used pure data-driven features from raw mammograms without any lesion annotations to develop the algorithm. Results of their study, published in Scientific Reports, show the potential of the new deep-learning model for predicting breast... Read more

Mammograms: Are We Overdiagnosing Small Tumours?

2017 12 Jun

According to a Yale study, because many small breast cancers are inherently slow growing, often these cancers will not grow large enough to become significant within a patient’s lifetime and subsequently early detection could lead to overdiagnosis. In contrast, large tumours that cause most breast cancer deaths often grow so quickly that they become... Read more
