AI-Based Approach Reduces False Positives in Mammography

A team of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) approach based on deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) that could identify nuanced mammographic imaging features specific for recalled but benign (false-positive) mammograms and distinguish such mammograms from those identified as malignant or negative.

AI Tool Identifies Cancer Type and Changes in Lung Tumor

Researchers from the NYU School of Medicine have developed a new computer program that can analyze the images of patients' lung tumors, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth. In their study, the researchers found that the artificial intelligence (AI), or "machine learning," program could distinguish -- with 97% accuracy -- between adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, two lung cancer types that experienced pathologists at times struggle to parse without confirmatory tests. Additionally, the study found that the AI was also able to determine from analyzing the images whether the abnormal versions of six genes linked to lung cancer – including EGFR, KRAS and TP53 – were present in cells, with an accuracy ranging from 73% to 86%, depending upon the gene.

AI to Save Healthcare Industry over USD 150 Billion by 2025

Artificial Intelligence (AI)-enabled solutions offer real-world benefits such as automated disease prediction, personalization of treatment pathways, intuitive claims management, and real-time supply chain management to ensure higher profitability and sustained competitive advantage for payers, providers and pharmaceutical enterprises. In spite of these benefits, their uptake in healthcare IT has been slow on account of strategic and technological challenges, with only 15-20% of end users actively using AI to bring about a real change in the way they deliver healthcare.
