Source:
University of Southern California
Summary:
Scientists have developed a better way to identify markers for breast cancer tumors, a breakthrough that could lead to better treatment for millions of women. They used machine learning to rapidly sort images of tumors to identify estrogen receptors, a key to determining prognosis and treatment. The technique offers a new pathway for breast cancer treatment that promises faster results for less cost for more people worldwide.

If it works as well as they claim, it sure will.
I think it's great that we're now developing noninvasive ways to diagnose illnesses.
In my opinion, invasive methods often compound the problem.
In the case of cancer, I think it's like poking a stick into a hornet's nest.
Lovin' the new imaging technologies.

I know. That's why there are so many unnecessary procedures done. They just blindly follow doctor's orders. They have no idea if their Dr. is keeping up with advancements.
Also, there are greedy crooks in all professions. No exceptions.
