At a seminar on the “Emerging Trends in Breast Cancer’, organized by the Institute of Medical Technology Pakistan, at the JSMU (Jinnah Sindh Medical University) in Karachi, the role of AI (Artificial Intelligence) in early breast cancer detection was discussed.
The seminar explored the exponential growth in the field of AI and how it will help identify patients at a high risk of cancer even without symptoms.
The seminar explored how AI is expected to deliver better and less aggressive treatments, improving survival rates in patients.
At the seminar, the VC (Vice-Chancellor) of JSMU Amjad Siraj Memon, stated that self-examination is still important to detect early tumors and prevent the cases from becoming severe.
AI is expected to offer promising results according to researchers worldwide as it works efficiently to carry out tasks humans cannot perform with that much speed.
According to Dr. Hugo Aerts (a Ph.D. from Harvard Medical School), AI will eventually be used at clinics as the results are too good to ignore. He also added that not utilizing AI would be a waste of precious technology as it goes beyond where human beings can go!
