Using AI to Predict Breast Cancer and Personalize Care

Home Blog Using AI to Predict Breast Cancer and Personalize Care

MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has created a new deep-learning model that can predict from a mammogram if a patient is likely to develop breast cancer as much as five years in the future. The model has learned from known outcomes of over 60,000 patients to notice the patterns in breast tissue that are precursors to malignant tumors. Using this type of technology could enable doctors to customize screening and prevention programs at the individual level and hopefully end late diagnosing of breast cancer. Recommendations on when annual mammogram screenings vary between organizations. Using a model like this will be able to personalize the screenings to the individual, rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach, allowing to better predict risk of cancer.
