New Zealand imaging provider to use AI for prostate cancer detection

Mercy Radiology, a New Zealand-based imaging provider, has plans to use artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to help with the detection of prostate cancer.

According to a new report from Newshub, Mercy Radiology is looking to begin its trial run with AI algorithms “in the next few months.” The provider’s plan is for the AI to work in the background while radiologists work like normal.

“The radiologist will report the scan as usual, but the algorithm will be running in parallel, looking at the image data that is captured and assessing whether there is something that needs to be reported or not,” Dr. Lloyd McCann, CEO of Mercy Radiology, told Newshub in an interview.
