Florian Markowetz, James Brenton, Mireia Crispin-Ortuzar and Greg Hannon were recently featured on the ITV Anglia news talking about the use of AI and VR in the treatment of cancer.
This permanent feature on the ITV website highlights that researchers at the University of Cambridge have used artificial intelligence to help identify suspected cases of a condition which could lead to oesophageal cancer.
Florian states: “We’ve shown that it’s possible to use computer-aided tools to streamline identification of people at risk of Barrett oesophagus. By semi-automating the process, we can reduce the workload by more than half while retaining the accuracy of a skilled pathologist. This could potentially speed up the diagnosis of Barrett oesophagus and, potentially, the identification of those individuals at greatest risk of oesophageal cancer.”
