AI beats doctors at spotting breast cancer

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Artificial intelligence is more accurate than doctors in diagnosing breast cancer from mammograms, a study in the journal Nature suggests.

An international team, including researchers from Google Health and Imperial College London, designed and trained a computer model on X-ray images from nearly 29,000 women.

The algorithm outperformed six radiologists in reading mammograms.

AI was still as good as two doctors working together.

Unlike humans, AI is tireless. Experts say it could improve detection.

It sounds good for a screening tool but it won't soon replace skilled, experienced Radiologists.  Too much nuance and understanding the implications of lifestyle, heredity and such things.  Most general practitioners work from preset algorithms and machines can diagnose and prescribe treatment with the same things but visual analysis of imaging and pathology samples is a different level of cognition altogether.
