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.
