Artificial Intelligence LYNA (Lymph Node Assistant) from Google has learned to recognize cancer in images with an accuracy of 99%, writes BGR. LYNA demonstrates remarkable accuracy in determining whether the cancer has spread to the patient’s lymph nodes. The determination of this fact is the main factor in prescribing treatment from a doctor.
Google notes that the diagnosis of lymph node metastasis by a living specialist can often be erroneous due to the lack of time and hasty conclusions: “LYNA was able to accurately localize cancer and other suspicious regions on each slide. Some of these points were very small for the doctors to notice. ”
LYNA can definitely be useful to doctors, drawing their attention to the zones in the pictures when making the final diagnosis.
