Artificial intelligence assisted tools for prostate cancer diagnosis using whole slide biopsy images

Topic Status Incomplete

Approximately 90,000 men undergo prostate biopsy to diagnose prostate cancer each year in the UK. Artificial intelligence assisted tools have been developed for use by pathologists as an aid to diagnosis, potentially improving accuracy and speed.



Health Technology Wales researchers searched for evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of artificial intelligence assisted tools in the diagnosis of prostate cancer from whole slide digital biopsy images.


HTW’s Assessment Group decided to progress this topic to full appraisal.
