Enabling early diagnosis and precision nmNSCLC treatment with AI"Radiomics"
Lung cancer shows no symptoms until advanced stage. Automated analysis of 90M CT scans US patients receive p.a., such as emergency and cardiac studies, enables an "early identification system" to radically reshape outcomes. Leveraging powers of NLP and "Radiomics" to drive tiniest tumours into followup intervention, and deliver precision nmNSCLC treatment with targeted and immunotherapies.
