Queen’s School of Computing is excited to share with you the latest news about Dr. Parvin Mousavi, who was interviewed on live news about a cancer research trial she is currently leading.
Dr. Mousavi and her team study the smoke created by burning tissue in cancer biopsies and analyze the profiles of molecules using AI. By doing so, they can create a model that can correctly identify what type of tissue has been burnt, whether it is cancerous or not. This technology can be used to help surgeons make informed decisions in real time while the patient is still in the operating room.
The research has been focused on breast cancer surgery for the last five years and is still in the trial phase. While it is difficult to say when these methods will be fully adopted, Dr. Mousavi is optimistic that with the cooperation and generous participation of patients themselves, it is possible to further advance these technologies. “This innovative technology could change the way we treat cancer patients, giving doctors the ability to make informed decisions and perform better surgeries. With this development, we can hope for better outcomes for cancer patients and a brighter future for cancer treatment.”
