AI Spotlight: Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

AI Spotlight: Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing healthcare in many ways; supporting the screening and diagnosis of cancer is one of the most significant. March is colorectal cancer awareness month, and AI is playing a role in not just early detection but also treatment.

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2023 there will be 106,970 new cases of colorectal cancer diagnosed and 52,550 deaths.

This week’s Domain Knowledge shares a collection of clinical articles highlighting the role AI can play in the screening and treatment of colorectal cancer (CRC).
