AI Tool Identifies Cancer Type and Changes in Lung Tumor
Researchers from the NYU School of Medicine have developed a new computer program that can analyze the images of patients' lung tumors, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth. In their study, the researchers found that the artificial intelligence (AI), or "machine learning," program could distinguish -- with 97% accuracy -- between adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, two lung cancer types that experienced pathologists at times struggle to parse without confirmatory tests. Additionally, the study found that the AI was also able to determine from analyzing the images whether the abnormal versions of six genes linked to lung cancer – including EGFR, KRAS and TP53 – were present in cells, with an accuracy ranging from 73% to 86%, depending upon the gene.
