Machine Learning Leads to Earlier Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Early diagnosis is crucial for patients suffering from mesothelioma. Unfortunately, due to current diagnosis methods, an early diagnosis of mesothelioma is rare. However, new technology developed by Google artificial intelligence (AI) experts may be the solution the mesothelioma community needs. The technology, a new machine learning tool using AI, can identify the rare cancer before » Read More

Role of MicroRNAs in a Mesothelioma Diagnosis

One of the main difficulties in treating malignant mesothelioma is its tendency to exhibit symptoms when the disease has progressed too far for effective treatment. Researchers worked to detect biomarkers by analyzing blood samples from patients who have been exposed to asbestos, but there is still much work to be done. MicroRNAs are tiny molecules » Read More

Mesothelioma Imaging System May Reduce Recurrence
