Google, iCAD team up to deploy AI for cancer detection, other healthcare services


As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to evolve, the technology has found applicability in several sectors, with the latest deployment coming in healthcare.

iCAD  has announced a review of a partnership with Google Health to include a clause allowing for an integration of Google AI’s technology. The original collaboration involved a development and commercialization agreement for iCAD’s ProFound Breast Health Suite.

The new amendment to the partnership will see the deployment of AI into its deep-learning cancer detection solution. Integrating AI will reduce unnecessary recalls, false positives while improving efficiency,
