Using Artificial Intelligence to Deliver Personalized Radiation Therapy

Cleveland Clinic researchers have trained an advanced computer network to find subtle radiation sensitivity features in the CT scans of individual lung cancer patients that can predict the likelihood of successful radiotherapy outcomes. The network can generate a personalized radiation dose plan that reduces the probability of treatment failure to less than 5%.
