How an AI-powered tool could help diagnose skin cancer in veterans
By Healthcare IT News , April 1st, 2022
Research shows an increased risk of skin cancer among U.S. service members – leading the American Academy of Dermatology in 2018 to urge soldiers and veterans to work toward early detection.
Now, General Dynamics Information Technology has worked to develop an artificial intelligence-powered tool aimed at improving the skin care diagnostic process for veterans. The technology, as described on GDIT's website, is intended to classify skin lesions, determine if they are indicative of a common skin disease and potentially recommend follow-up care if necessary.
