Screening, early detection, treatment optimisation

AI techniques advancing oncology care

Cancer care and the treatment clinicians can offer patients is being increasingly enhanced by Artificial Intelligence (AI). The technology has a role in diagnosis, with algorithms trained to design and deliver patient care, can match patients to clinical trials they may benefit from, and even help predict outcomes and those at greatest risk. The session, New Frontiers of AI and Data Analytics in Oncology at the online HIMSS21 European Health Conference, explored where AI and data analytics is having the greatest impact today: screening and early detection, auto-planning for radiotherapy, treatment optimisation, identification of new biomarkers and more.
