Artificial Intelligence (AI) Could Lead Doctors to Misinterpret Mammograms

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Says the article on, “Breast cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the breast tissue, typically in the cells that line the milk ducts (ductal carcinoma) or the lobules that produce milk (lobular carcinoma).  Cancer occurs when cells in the body grow uncontrollably, forming a mass or lump called a tumor.” What might make normal cells grow uncontrollably? You have learned that fungal poisons (mycotoxins) found in our air supply, medications and sometimes our foods, increase the risk of breast cancers.  The conclusion of whether AI ads to more accurate mammograms was this (1),  “The results show that inexperienced, moderately experienced, and very experienced radiologists reading mammograms are prone to automation bias when being supported by an AI-based system.”

Please never misunderstand my articles. I am not trying to dissuade you from seeing your doctor. Rather, I do this only to highlight considerations you must make before any medical procedure. Some time ago, I educated you that routine mammograms, without AI, were about 58% accurate (see original article). This coupled with the new AI “automation bias” women will undoubtedly soon witness.  If needs be, an open and honest conversation with your doctor is likely a good idea.
