Lung and pancreatic cancers are very often difficult to treat, especially when the cancer has spread to other organs.
The five-year survival rate for lung cancer that has spread is 5%.
For pancreatic cancer, it’s 3%.
Now a group of researchers have developed a system to use computers to increase a patient’s odds.
Courtney Hunter explains in Healthy Living.
The researchers have already filed for a patent for the AI system to detect pancreatic cysts.
Now they are looking to get FDA approval for clinical use for both the lung and pancreatic cancer systems so doctors can start using them in hospital settings.
