New Machine Learning Model to Classify Types of Lung Cancer
Over the years, machine learning has improved dramatically and has shown great improvement in image analysis. The research specialists at Dartmouth's Norris Cotton Cancer Center have developed a new machine learning model to classify different types of lung cancer in under a minute. Machine Learning is a subset of AI and is a type of algorithm that trains itself to predict outcomes. The researchers have utilized machine learning to assist different tumor patterns and subtypes of lung adenocarcinoma, the leading cause of cancer-related deaths. Lung adenocarcinoma requires visual examination of lobectomy slides to determine the pattern and subtypes of lung cancer. Lobectomy is a type of lung cancer surgery where one lobe of the lung is removed. This classification plays a pivotal role in determination of treatment of lung cancer. "Our study demonstrates that machine learning can achieve high performance on a challenging image classification task and has the potential to be an asset to
