ANN ARBOR, Changing the way individuals are selected to be screened for lung cancer, by considering their probability of getting or dying from lung cancer calculated from risk-prediction models, could prevent 14% of lung cancer deaths per year. by Andrea LaFerle (ref: https://news.umich.edu/screening-for-lung-cancer-based-on-risk-could-save-lives/)

Breast cancer affects a large number of women worldwide. Its early detection can decrease the mortality rates and provide a better quality of life. Although mammography remains the first choice method for breast cancer detection, several Softwares that facilitate the analysis of mammograms and more advance techniques with increased sensitivity have entered the clinical market. Lastly, genetic and biomarker testings are also useful tools in the fight against breast cancer.

Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer and the number of people suffering from it increases every year. Thanks to technological advancements, many new devices, and software that aim to increase the sensitivity and accuracy of skin cancer detection have been developed. This article presents an overview of the majority of diagnostic tools available for skin cancer screening; from the clinical examination which remains the golden standard to mobile apps and imaging devices.

Parts of tumor tissue, which is normally discarded in cancer surgery, bear information about the disease. So far, as studies at the University of Gothenburg show, this has been unexploited. This research forms the basis for a new experimental platform for cancer diagnostics, prognoses and testing cancer drugs.

This is a great article that talks about some of the pitfalls of being too eager for AI to replace doctors in cancer screening and diagnosis. While AI has made headlines detecting breast cancer more accurately than doctors, this article is a good reminder that it's not a competition between the doctors and AI but an issue of how to use the strengths of both.

A team of German researchers created a new multimodal system for rapid, noninvasive in vivo skin cancer screening is presented, combining optical coherence tomography (OCT) and optoacoustic (OA) modalities to provide precise tumor depth determination with a Raman spectroscopic modality capable of detecting the lesion type and, thus, providing diagnostic capability.

Researchers at the University of Waterloo have created a new, inexpensive device that screens women for breast cancer without exposing them to radiation. The technology relies on artificial intelligence (AI) and harmless microwaves to discover even small, early-stage growths, and does so within minutes. The prototype device, which concludes 15 years of research on the use of microwaves for identifying tumors, costs less than $5,000 to build.
