Google Develops AI for Ultrasound Diagnosis and Cancer Therapy
At its annual healthcare event, The Check Up, Google announced partnerships with medical organizations to explore the use of AI in ultrasound readings, medical language models, and cancer treatments. The company sees AI as a critical tool in simplifying ultrasound diagnosis in areas with a shortage of trained specialists. Google’s AI models could help identify data such as early breast cancer detection and gestational age in pregnant women. The company is partnering with Jacaranda Health in Kenya to research AI-based ultrasound treatments for mothers and babies in government hospitals.
