To read the paper please click on the link below:. With , annual deaths, cancer is a leading cause of mortality in the US, 2nd only to heart disease, which claims , annually. Early-stage cancer patients typically have no symptoms and so often they are unaware that a cancer already exists and maybe spreading. Finding cancer after it has already spread dramatically decreases the chance of survival. A Long Overdue Solution.
Cancer Detection and Diagnosis Research

What does the future of healthcare look like in a world where artificial intelligence exists? Doctors, scientists and researchers alike are working tirelessly to answer this very question. The possibilities of what AI could do in the field are endless, ranging from diagnosing heart disease more accurately than doctors to knowing when to go forward with surgery. The poor prognoses associated with most cancers creates a sense of urgency for the brains behind healthcare AI research. Fortunately, researchers have found that AI is able to detect cancer and other diseases earlier than possible through standard diagnostic methods, which could be lifesaving for future patients.
The technology uses an electric field to concentrate and separate cancer biomarkers onto a paper strip. It could someday become a kind of liquid biopsy and could lead to earlier detection of and faster treatments for cancer, a disease that causes more than 9. Led by Wenji Dong, associate professor in the Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, and graduate student Shuang Guo, the researchers were able to detect miniscule levels of the cancer markers in tiny extracellular bubbles called exosomes in as little as 10 minutes. Researchers have long sought ways to detect cancer earlier to save more lives. Instead, people most often find out they have cancer through invasive biopsies once tumors are established.
