To address the shortage of hospital-affected radiologists, several European companies have trained AI to detect signs of breast cancer.
Kheiron Medical has recently announced that it will use KI algorithms to diagnose breast cancer with a cancer test trial using historical scans that will be launched this month at an NHS trust in Leeds. The company's technology is also being tested in the East Midlands against tens of thousands of historical scans.
Google's own AI company recently started a trial on the NHS and the Dutch company ScreenPoint Medical has developed a similar technology. [1
Kheiro's algorithm was trained With half a million scans from Hungarian hospitals, the technology can surpass the average performance of a human radiologist at 3,500 scans, according to the startup.
The company's clinical director, Hugh Harvey, told the Financial Times about his testing process. Say:
"The first phase is that we analyze historical data on a large scale and, if we are happy, that the algorithm is the same, optimally reshape. , , We will test it on living patients.
Hospitals in the UK have a severe shortage of radiologists, and hopefully one day they will be able to read using KI scans without human resources. However, we are still a long way from becoming the norm, although much progress has been made in the industry so far.
