Artificial intelligence and breast cancer

Artificial intelligence has achieved a milestone in the early detection of #breastcancer, significantly improving the accuracy of screening and #mammograms. A recent Swedish study has revealed that the application of #IA algorithms to mammogram images has increased the detection of cancerous breast tumors in women by 20%.

According to the research, carried out by health and technology experts, artificial intelligence has proven to be highly effective in the early identification of lesions and tumors in mammograms. The results of this study have been published in the scientific journal The Lancet Oncology, highlighting the potentially revolutionary impact of this technology in the effective and efficient #detection with respect to the current method of double reading by two radiologists.

The study was conducted on a sample of 80,000 Swedish women. The data obtained show that the use of artificial intelligence has made it possible to identify smaller tumors and at earlier stages, which increases the chances of successful treatment and reduces the mortality rate associated with this disease.

One obstacle that society tends to put in the way of the development of new technologies is that of the possible replacement of people’s work by technologies. Even in the case we have been discussing, experts emphasize that artificial intelligence would not replace doctors and radiologists, but would be used as a complementary tool to improve detection and #diagnosis. The precision of artificial intelligence together with the experience and clinical judgment of healthcare professionals can lead to much more effective treatment.

This advance in medicine is undoubtedly further proof of the transformative potential of artificial intelligence in healthcare. At Lucentia, we are also working to participate in this technological transformation to improve people’s lives through an effective diagnosis of ADHD through the Balladeer project.

The Balladeer project (PROMETEO/2021/088) is funded, within the Prometeo program, by the Conselleria de Innovación, Universidades, Ciencia y Sociedad Digital de la Generalitat Valenciana.
