Advancements in A.I. are beginning to deliver breakthroughs in breast cancer screening by detecting the signs that doctors miss.
So far, the technology is showing an impressive ability to spot cancer at least as well as human radiologists, according to early results and radiologists, in what is one of the most tangible signs to date of how A.I. can improve public health.
Hungary, which has a robust breast cancer screening program, is one of the largest testing grounds for the technology on real patients.
At five hospitals and clinics that perform more than 35,000 screenings a year, A.I. systems were rolled out starting in 2021 and now help to check for signs of cancer that a radiologist may have overlooked.
Clinics and hospitals in the United States, Britain and the European Union are also beginning to test or provide data to help develop the systems.
