The use of AI is transforming the process of screening for breast cancer.

The advancements in AI are revolutionizing the way breast cancer screenings are conducted.

AI is revolutionizing the healthcare industry in multiple aspects, such as its use as a supplementary tool in breast cancer screenings.

Preliminary findings from a recent study indicate that physicians using AI for mammography screening were able to detect 20% more cases of cancer. Additionally, research published in the Nature Medicine journal by Northwestern Medicine suggests that AI could potentially predict results for invasive breast cancer, potentially reducing the need for unnecessary chemotherapy for patients.

“These additional tools provide an extra layer of surveillance for Tehillah Harris, particularly as someone with a family history. At the age of 32, she lost her mother to breast cancer.”

The physician offered the option of using new technology for mammograms and breast sonograms. The individual agreed to participate.

Dr. Laurie Margolies, the director of breast imaging at Mount Sinai, demonstrated for CBS News how AI analyzes mammograms and sorts them into three levels of risk: low, intermediate and elevated.

Artificial intelligence is also utilized for interpreting breast sonograms. In one case observed by CBS News, the tool was able to complete its analysis in a matter of seconds. However, a radiologist also reviews the scans.

According to Margolies, AI is meant to assist us in a similar manner as how the magnifying glass assisted us 30 years ago. She also believes that the technology will not replace human doctors.

According to her, AI’s purpose is not to show empathy. It simply offers an opinion. It may not have access to someone’s family background in the future, and it is unable to offer physical comfort like a hug.

Although Harris is pleased with the introduction of the new screening tools, she is not yet prepared to bid farewell to her physicians.

She explains that you would like someone to come and clarify it for you, and if necessary, guide you through the process.
