Artificial intelligence predicts the risk of colon and rectal cancer


A team of researchers in the United States has created an artificial intelligence system that can predict the odds of developing colorectal cancer in adults, according to the Emirati statement.

As part of the study reported by the scientific journal “PLOS ONE” this month, the research team at Ohio State University, headed by researcher Hisham Hussein, developed a prediction system that works with artificial intelligence techniques and can analyze patients electronic health records to predict their chances of developing colorectal cancer, in the age group of 35 to 50 years old.

The study team confirmed, in statements reported by the Medical Express website, which specializes in medical sciences, that the new system was tested on 3,116 adults who underwent colonoscopy during the period between 2017 and 2020.

The research team stated that the new system was able to predict the odds of developing colorectal cancer with a higher accuracy than the current methods.

The researchers say that “this system needs to be developed further before clinical trials can begin in patients.”
