Artificial intelligence eliminates radiation exposure in breast cancer screening

Browse By

A new system that utilizes sensors and AI to rapidly distinguish tumors can screen ladies for breast cancer without exposure to radiation.

The gadget imagined by scientists from the University of Waterloo in Canada analyzes microwaves to distinguish even small, beginning time tumors within minutes.

It took 15 years of research to build up the prototype, yet under $3,800 (CAD 5,000) to manufacture it.

The gadget is involved a little sensor inside an adjustable box, which is set under an opening of a padded table. Patients lie face-down on the table with a breast over the opening while the sensor sends innocuous microwaves that skip back to be handled by AI software installed on a laptop.

The software at that point investigation the breast’s tissue composition to distinguish any irregularities that could be an indication of cancer. On the off chance that it identifies a potential tumor, it triggers a referral for additional tests utilizing mammography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
