 Image Analysis Software may Help Identify Biomarkers of Aggressive Breast Cancer

Researchers at University of Cambridge are making use of image analysis software, originally developed to study distant stars, to identify biomarkers of aggressive breast cancer.

The researchers said that the astronomical algorithms have been adapted to biology and added that the software is as accurate as and faster than traditional tumor analysis procedures.


The British Journal of Cancer carried a study which showed how the software was used on more than 2,000 samples from breast cancer patients in a single day when it would have taken more than a week for traditional procedures.

Lead researcher Raza Ali said that his team will be expanding the study to include more than 20,000 samples and revealed the software can analyze up to 4,000 samples in a single day. Ali said that samples and algorithms have been placed in the public domain. "It shows that we don't cross-communicate as much as we ought to", he said.
