In 10 seconds? An artificial intelligence (AI) assistant can speed up the examination of breast cancer images. Using the tool, pathologists can detect dividing cells nearly 30% faster, raising the hope of better healthcare decisions for patients in the future.
What’s the breakthrough? Working with a group of 24 pathologists with different levels of experience, researchers found that 87.5% of them correctly identified more “mitotic figures” from microscopic images of breast cancer tissue when using an AI tool. What’s more, it reduced the average time to do so by 27.8%.
