July 05, 2022

The exponential growth of Artificial Intelligence will help identify patients at a high risk of cancer even without symptoms and deliver better and less aggressive treatment options and improve survival rates.

This was shared at a seminar organized by the Institute of Medical Technology, Jinnah Sindh Medical University on the ‘Emerging Trends in Breast Cancer’ in Karachi.

While addressing the seminar, Vice Chancellor JSMU Professor Amjad Siraj Memon said that a self-breast examination is important to detect early tumours.

He said the latest advancements in Artificial Intelligence models could predict breast cancer from high-resolution mammography scans with a similar accuracy level to expert radiographers and could significantly reduce the workload of radiologists.
