Overview

In this session, Ivan Tarapov demos a prototype application of assistive AI for cancer treatment: helping a radiologist create a treatment plan. AI has the capability of identifying the tumor and nearby anatomical structures in 3D, performing a labor-intensive task called segment contouring with 90 percent accuracy, and doing so dozens of times faster than a human.
