Medical and Scientific: New screening test for prostate

18 Jan 2021 - Medical and Scientific

An innovative new screening program is helping men monitor their health by ‘predicting’ their risk of developing prostate cancer. Australian medical technology company Maxwell Plus is using artificial intelligence (AI) to determine the likelihood of a person developing prostate cancer, in the hope it will help diagnose men earlier and decrease the country’s high case numbers. The program works by assessing all the normal risk factors, such as age, family history, blood and prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels, and then comparing them to a dataset of more than 250,000 men.
