Deep-Learning AI Algorithm That Uses False-Color Enhancement Technique May Be As Accurate As Expert Radiologist For Detecting Breast Cancer, Study Suggests.

Aunt Minnie (7/6, Ridley) reports a deep-learning AI algorithm that uses “a false-color enhancement technique that converts black-and-white shadows on mammograms into color...can achieve accuracy similar to an expert radiologist’s for detecting breast cancer,” according to a study published in the Journal of Digital Imaging. Researchers found that “the algorithm yielded 91% sensitivity and 80% specificity,” which is “as good a performance as any published results for radiologists working with or without computer-aided detection (CAD) software.”
