#frAIday: Prediction models and AI in prostate cancer treatment

Time Friday 3 May, 2024 at 12:15 - 13:00
Place Betula / Zoom

#frAIday hybrid
This lecture will be held both on Zoom and in Betula at Norrlands Universitetssjukhus. We will offer free lunch wraps! Limited number available, so come in time to secure yours. Welcome!

Both prostate cancer diagnostics and treatment suffer from inefficient use of information for clinical decision making, leading to high rates of overdiagnosis and overtreatment of indolent disease at the same time as prostate cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among men. We will in our presentation discuss how we are systematically trying to develop and clinically implement prediction models and artificial intelligence (AI) systems to address these inefficiencies. We will for example discuss the combination of the Stockholm3 test with MRI to improve prostate cancer diagnostics (Eklund et al. NEJM, 2021; Nordström et al. Lancet Oncology, 2021), and show results from the development of an AI-system for diagnosis and grading of prostate cancer in biopsies (Ström et al. Lancet Oncology, 2020; Bulten et al. Nature Medicine, 2022; Olsson et al. Nature Communications 2022), which we have demonstrated can performs on par with internationally leading uro-pathologist. We will also discuss the link between AI and clinical trials and how clinical trials can be transformed into continuous learning systems, which we will exemplify with the ongoing ProBio trial for improving treatment for men with metastatic prostate cancer (De Laere et al. Nature Medicine, 2024).
