Researchers at the University of Waterloo are using artificial intelligence to improve the precision and effectiveness of non-invasive cancer treatment. Their imaging system will allow doctors to visualize and control high-intensity, focused ultrasound to destroy cancerous tumors more safely and effectively. The system provides real-time monitoring and can detect how much of the tumor has been destroyed with a 93% accuracy rate, helping surgeons better control focused ultrasound treatment. The team is working to expand their method and track the growth of a treated area in real-time during treatment. Medical specialists have given the technology positive feedback, with interest from medical clinics to adopt the system for clinical use.
