MIT Deploys Deep Learning Tool for Analyzing Mammograms

Depending on which radiologist analyzes a mammogram, there’s a huge variation in breast density readings — an assessment that indicates a patient’s risk for developing breast cancer. One study found that radiologists classified anywhere between six and 85 percent of mammograms into the higher cancer risk areas of “heterogeneously dense” or “extremely dense.” Researchers at Read article >
