AI and machine learning could improve cancer diagnosis through biomarker discovery

Via News-Medical.Net | March 1, 2022

Artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning (DL), and machine learning (ML) have transformed many industries and areas of science. Now, these tools are being applied to address the challenges of cancer biomarker discovery, where the analysis of vast amounts of imaging and molecular data is beyond the ability of traditional statistical analyses and tools. In a special issue of Cancer Biomarkers, researchers propose various approaches and explore some of the unique challenges of using AI, DL, and ML to improve the accuracy and predictive power of biomarkers for cancer and other diseases.

“The biomarker field is blessed with a plethora of imaging and molecular-based data, and at the same time, plagued with so much data that no one individual can comprehend it all,” explained Guest Editor Karin Rodland, PhD, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland; and Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR, USA. “AI offers a solution to that problem, and it has the potential to uncover novel interactions that more accurately reflect the biology of cancer and other diseases… Continue reading.

Novel ‘Six-Dimensional’ Cardiac MR Technique Said to Simplify CMR, Avoid Pitfalls

Via MedScape | April 13, 2018

An experimental technique for cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging that is unaffected by cardiac or respiratory motion, and in fact captures such motion as part of the imaging process, could potentially sharpen and simplify CMR procedures, researchers say.

The technique’s inventors, who call it CMR Multitasking, report that it is less technically demanding for CMR technologists compared with current methods and greatly shortens overall scanning time, which is touted as a benefit for both patients and providers… Continue reading.
