AI outperforms humans in identifying cervical cancer

Good Samaritan is Offering FREE Women's Health Screenings

Good Samaritan is Offering FREE Women's Health Screenings

During this past year, while you were busy with work, volunteering or taking care of family and friends, did you keep in mind to take time out for your cervical health?

To create the algorithm, the research team used more than 60,000 cervical images from an NCI archive of photos collected during a cervical cancer screening study that was carried out in Costa Rica in the 1990s.

"We need to fix this relatively quickly or we are going to start seeing problems down the line", MacLaughlin told MedPage Today.

Ministry of Health and Population, in a bid to combat cervical cancer in the country, is introducing a vaccine for nine year- old girls throughout the country and the launching ceremony is scheduled for January 10,2019 in Mangochi District.

Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the world, with 570,000 cases per year in 2018 according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Women between the ages of 30 and 65 may opt instead to lengthen the interval between screening with a combination of cytology and HPV testing every five years. "That was a positive finding". The findings contradict self-reported data from the 2015 National Health Interview Study, in which 81% of women reported compliance. The percentage was even lower for women aged 21 to 29, with just over half up to date on screenings. The researchers also observed troubling disparities across racial/ethnic groups. However, the Olmsted County population is less ethnically diverse than the USA population as a whole, which limits the generalizability. However, lack of awareness among women in less developed countries, lack of accessibility for appropriate screening test, and shortage of skilled medical staff to perform tests and good laboratories are estimated to restrain the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Weather Authority: Light snow overnight
Travel will be slick and hazardous over the entire area with deeper snow and more hard conditions the farther south you go. Snow showers will linger after midnight and could still be falling early on Saturday with little additional accumulation.

MacLaughlin said that healthcare providers need to be more proactive in reaching out to patients to make sure they are being screened on a timely basis. Earlier this week, Mayo Clinic released a study suggesting cervical cancer screening rates are not as high as previous surveys have indicated.

"While we have made significant strides to decrease mortality from cervical cancer, we continue to see our minority females most commonly stricken with the disease", Ramirez said.

"We don't want to lose the positive progress we have gained", she said. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2014 data, 4115 women died due to cervical cancer in the USA owing to the growing death rate due to cancer, governments of developed economies are continuously focusing on increasing awareness among the populace about screening programmes and make them accessible, to decrease the rate of mortality caused by genital cancer.
