Cervical Cancer Detection
Cervical cancer occurs when normal cells in the cervix change into cancer cells. This normally takes several years to happen, but it can also happen in a very short period of time. Cervical cancer can be detected by cytological study of epidermal cells removed from the cervix in a process known as pap smear. Each year, about 15,000 women in the United States learn that they have cancer of the cervix (NIH national cancer institute).
Airdoc has been developing deep neural network and image processing algorithms to segment and detect diseased cells based on a large number of labeled cytological images.
