The project will see a consortium of leading breast cancer experts, clinicians and academics partner with leaders in artificial intelligence (AI) research to explore whether AI could help detect and diagnose breast cancers more effectively.

Clinicians and radiologists from Imperial College London will work on the research with technical partners at DeepMind Health and the AI health research team at Google, alongside the Cancer-Research UK funded OPTIMAM mammography database at the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Artificial intelligence will learn from thousands of mammograms. Machines will learn to review mammograms. (image src: click here)

If successful,  this research will improve the quality of reporting of screening mammograms, leading to fewer missed cancers, fewer false alarms and, we hope, ultimately saving lives.
