Scientists Say Machine Learning Could Help Diagnose Mesothelioma Earlier

machine leaning might help diagnose mesothelioma earlier

Researchers in Toronto say machine learning could help doctors diagnose mesothelioma earlier. Molecular geneticists at the University of Toronto teamed up with cancer and heart doctors to conduct the new research. The team collected data from hundreds of suspected mesothelioma cases and ran it through different statistical analysis programs. The goal was to see which one was best at determining who had pleural mesothelioma and who did not. The results revealed some important information – both about the machine learning tools and about how doctors might diagnose mesothelioma earlier, even without them. Why Doctors Need to Diagnose Mesothelioma Earlier Mesothelioma is almost always caused by asbestos exposure. In the first few years of the disease, there may be no mesothelioma … Continue reading Scientists Say Machine Learning Could Help Diagnose Mesothelioma Earlier »
