Artificial Intelligence has certainly been evolving rapidly with being deployed in almost every field of life. Researchers have not been able to investigate its impact on cancer care, which still remains an area of research. Amid all those concerns, the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2023 in Madrid is set to hold a 4-days session to unveil the potential of AI in cancer care.
Current Applications of AI
Researchers are yet to reap the full potential of AI in cancer care, there are some of its applications that are still in use. Currently, its applications are limited to, mammograms, triage of biopsy images and CT for scanning tumors in patients, and some minor other areas of research
Dr. Raquel Perez-Lopez from Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology reveals untapped potential in AI for cancer care at ESMO Congress 2023. Current hurdles include uneven application of cancer guidelines in Europe and underutilization of AI platforms due to legal constraints on patient data use.
