Integration into physical practice
Lehman said that the team is working to integrate the system into clinical practice over the next year. “In the past we might have recommended that all high-risk lesions be surgically excised. But now, if the model determines that the lesion has a very low chance of being cancerous in a specific patient, we can have a more informed discussion with our patient about her options. It may be reasonable for some patients to have their lesions followed with imaging rather than surgically excised,” he said.
