Artificial intelligence could help breast screening save more lives.

Like Comment

Right now, the NHS breast cancer screening programme saves around 1,300 lives in the UK each year.

But there are severe NHS staff shortages, particularly in the teams that help diagnose cancer,  with some reports suggesting that up to 1 in 10 diagnostic posts are currently vacant. Throw  in rising demand to the mix , and the future of these services could be in trouble. 

But new technology could help ease the situation. We’ve partnered with Google Health on research to develop artificial intelligence that not only has the potential to change the way we detect breast cancer but could also save the NHS time and money.
