It’s safe to say that technology has progressed significantly in these past few years with Google practically leading the revolution.

Now, Google has crossed into the medical field with its Al they call LYNA. LYNA is short for Lymph Node Assistant and she has reportedly reached such a sophisticated level that she can now detect the difference between cancer and non-cancer with an outrageous 99% accuracy, according to the New York Post.

In recent published papers, Google has explained that LYNA has demonstrated unbelievable accuracy in determining whether or not breast cancer has reached the patient’s lymph nodes. This is crucial in putting together a patient’s treatment plan and how the doctors might proceed forward.

“LYNA was able to accurately pinpoint the location of both cancers and other suspicious regions within each slide, some of which were too small to be consistently detected by pathologists,” Google reports, “As such, we reasoned that one potential benefit of LYNA could be to highlight these areas of concern for pathologists to review and determine the final diagnosis.”

Google also notes that the same process that LYNA has used can have an accuracy as low as 38% due to time crunches and fast-moving decisions based on the early treatment.

Could LYNA be the next step in preventing death by cancer? Read the full story on the New York Post here.
