New technology at Boca Raton Regional Hospital helps find breast cancer earlier

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Doctors at the Christine E. Lynne Women’s Health & Wellness Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital have been using new technology to help spot breast cancer sooner.

The new mammogram technology is called ProFound AI.

“It is artificial intelligence,” Dr. Kathy Schilling said.

Schilling said the AI helps ready the mammograms and can identify cancer by comparing the scans to thousands of others in a database.

“It learns different patterns that are common in cancers,” she added.

The AI has helped the medial team spot suspicious areas in scans they may have missed. Schilling shows a scan with a highlighted area from the AI that she said may have gone overlooked because it was small.
