Method for classifying liver tumors by utilizing CT slice images
The study discloses a method for classifying liver tumors by utilizing CT slice images. The segmentation of the liver, reduces the space range near the tumor image required to be focused by the model and leads to maximize extraction of the image information of the 3-dimensional space so as the more accurate classification can be achieved.
Challenges with AI
There is a highly promising future of AI and robotics in the healthcare sector. Below we have mentioned the most faced challenges associated with the technology:
Security of data: The protection of privacy and security of data is crucial. Personal medical history should be protected and hacking or manipulating the model can be a big problem.
Overfitting: It negatively impacts the performance of the model on new data.
Legal responsibility: Biased AI could affect the outcome of several patients. If the AI models make a wrong decision, who will be held accountable for this result?
