Artificial intelligence could help revolutionize cervical cancer screening, particularly in settings without access to more advanced screening methods, concludes recently published research by National Institutes of Health scientists.
Health care workers in low-resource settings currently screen women for cervical cancer by using a method called visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA). The workers apply diluted acetic acid to the cervix and inspect it with the naked eye. Areas that turn white indicate possible disease.
