Artificial Intelligence Improves Breast Cancer Screening in Study

JAMA. 2020;323(6):499. doi:10.1001/jama.2020.0370

An artificial intelligence (AI) system for breast cancer screening outperformed radiologists in a recent study in Nature. The technique spotted more cancers and raised fewer false alarms.

Researchers at Google Health and collaborators developed a deep-learning AI model for identifying breast cancer using screening mammograms from 2 large UK and US data sets. The test sets, which were not used to train or tune the system, included scans from 25 856 women at 2 screening centers in England and 3097 women at a US academic medical center.
