Artificial intelligence can improve both the accuracy and the speed of medical diagnosis. This has been found to be true for colorectal cancer. This project, a collaboration between the University Hospital and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, is implementing a tool to assist pathologists in prioritizing the mosr urgent cases of this agressive cancer, the most frequently diagnosed in Spain in 2021.
The Anatomical Pathology service of the Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Canarias (HUC) and the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) are partners in the development of a computer application adapting artificial intelligence tools used in astronomy to digitised images of human tissue. The project, called “Patolog-IA”, aims to speed up the interpretation of test results and the diagnosis of colorectal cancer. It is expected that it will also be useful for personalised medicine oriented to other kinds of cancer.
