Artificial Intelligence (AI) scientists at the Houston Methodist have developed a software that will make biopsies obsolete for detecting risk of breast cancer. It can make it 30 times faster than what a single doctor can do. The software can intelligently review millions of records in a very short amount of time to enable determination of breast cancer risk more efficiently using a patient’s mammogram. The research team has used the AI software to study the mammograms and pathology reports of 500 breast cancer patients. It scanned patient charts, collected diagnostic features and correlated mammogram findings with breast cancer subtype. This took only a few hours for the computer to make a cancer risk diagnosis for all 500 patients. On the other hand, it would have taken 50 hours for two physicians to access the cancer risk of just 50 patients.

Apple is increasingly believing that personal computing devices can assist more in the health and medical field. With the aim of becoming a big player in this field and broadening its spectrum, Apple acquired Gliimpse earlier this year. Gliimpse is a personal data healthcare start up founded by Anil Sethi, an ex-Apple engineer, in 2013. It helps in recording the medical reports and other health-related information like a secure, life-long story of a person’s health. Some of the information is collected from existing medical records and the rest are added by the users. This information can be shared with doctors and medical researchers when required.
