Artificial intelligence performs as well as experienced radiologists in detecting prostate cancer
FINDINGSUCLA researchers have developed a new artificial intelligence system to help radiologists improve their ability to diagnose prostate cancer. The system, called FocalNet, helps identify and predict the aggressiveness of the disease evaluating magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, scans, and it does so with nearly the same level of accuracy as experienced radiologists. In tests, FocalNet was 80.5 percent accurate in reading MRIs, while radiologists with at least 10 years of experience were 83.9 percent accurate.BACKGROUNDRadiologists use MRI to detect and assess the aggressiveness of malignant prostate tumors. However,...
