Google has announced its intention to license an AI search model to detect breast cancer, so it has partnered with medical technology company iCAD, hoping that this technology will be used to detect breast cancer in early and more accurately, as well as assessing its severity, in turn Nicole Linton, director of communications at Google, said that the company aims to use the technology in the field of medicine in an advanced way.
The development of Google’s technology in breast cancer detection
And according to what was stated in “The Verge”, “Linton” continued in his statements, confirming that this step is in an experimental stage, and that the issue of the official announcement of the technology depends largely on the extent of its success in Google is was chosen to improve AI’s ability to detect breast cancer, as its system outperformed many radiologists in detecting signs of breast cancer, according to the research paper previously published in Nature 2020.
3D breast imaging technology
According to the results of the research paper published by Google, the technology reduced the rate of false negative exams by 9.4%, while tracking a reduction in the rate of false positive exams of 5.7% among thousands of mammograms performed under studio iCAD, in turn, is studying the possibility of integrating the Google model and among its current tools is advanced AI for mammography, in order to be able to visualize the breast in detail using 3D digital technology.
In turn, the ProFound AI tool scans DBT images to look for densities of malignant soft tissue and cancerous tumors present in the area. iCAD seeks to develop a risk assessment tool that helps detect risk ratios for patients suffering from breast cancer.
Referring to the artificial intelligence model that the journal Nature published in 2020, James Vincent points out that there is no specific measure to diagnose cancer and asked to expand the ways to detect the disease and not limit it to its presence or not, emphasizing the The importance of artificial intelligence tools as they can provide more It is an option for doctors to diagnose the condition more accurately, especially in the initial stage of the infection, through its continuous development.
For its part, Google is communicating directly with the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), Imperial College, in order to reach a satisfactory conclusion on the feasibility of using artificial intelligence technology in mammograms, so as to help the physician to evaluate cases and prioritize based on examination.
