A new study suggests that an artificial intelligence system may be able to perform tasks as accurately as a highly trained radiologist. The paper published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute outlines how an AI system can accurately detect evaluate digital mammography in breast cancer screenings. Breast cancer screenings are an important tool in the early detection of breast cancer and the reduction of breast cancer-related mortality. Screenings currently are very labor intensive due to the high volume of women needing scans. In some parts of the world, including the U.S. there is a scarcity in the number of highly trained breast screening radiologists which has led to the development of AI systems that can do some of the tasks related to evaluating mammograms.
