Artificial Intelligence in Cancer Treatment
Can AI help diagnose cancer better?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been predicted to help treatment responses. Through Image analysis and other data, AI algorithms can help identify cancer at an early stage. The NPIC digital pathology programme is using new technology to diagnose cancer digitally.
Through Collaboration and partnership
Working with various Artificial Intelligence companies, it is possible to create AI that works for all patients and scanners across hospitals and the NHS. These partnerships will help create specialised diagnosis in a faster and efficient manner.
The Impact of Technology
With the continuous improvement in AI, the impact of this technology has the potential to boost productivity, information and knowledge sharing and revolutionise the way healthcare professionals diagnose, care, treat and manage cancer in a cost-effective manner.
Improving cancer research
While AI has shown the potential to improve cancer detection, NPIC research has built a digital scanner that can identify and predict the risk of cancer development in children, bone, and soft tissues.
Are the AI tools used by NPIC ready for the real world?
One of NPIC’s key roles is understanding the technology and being able to transfer the knowledge to other healthcare professionals. While scanners are being set up in laboratories and hospitals, NPIC has created a training centre
