Artificial intelligence would be superior to humans in diagnosing pigmented skin lesions, according to a new study led by experts at the Medical University of Vienna. Published in The Lancet Oncology journal on Tuesday, the study examined the results of tests where 511 physicians competed against 139 computer algorithms. The AI was trained on a database […]

A study by Google and various US medical centres has shown how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to detect lung cancer and provide doctors with more accurate computerised tomography (CT) scans readings. The paper with the new findings was published in Nature Medicine on May 20. In it, the researchers compared the results of the AI […]

Scientists from Northwestern University have developed a direct route to optimise spherical nucleic acids (SNAs), bringing them one step closer to becoming a viable treatment option for many forms of cancer, genetic diseases, neurological disorders and more. SNAs are a class of personalised medicines. They are challenging to optimise because their structures can vary in many ways, […]

Artificial intelligence (AI) developed by the University of Surrey can help in predicting cancer symptoms in individual patients, according to new research published in the PLO One journal. The researchers from the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) who worked on the study, believe it might be the first one of its kind. They created two […]

Cancer care solutions company Varian Medical Systems have published plans for an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven multimodality adaptive radiotherapy treatment suite that incorporates all types of imaging (MR, PET, CT). During the Users Meeting at the 2018 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting on Sunday, the Palo Alto-based company explained how the AI-driven multimodality […]
