Automate tumour contour definition
Defining tumour contours versus the surrouding healthy tissue to enable accurate and limited radioactivity deplpoyment is currently a manual task. This is painstaking work that is time-consuming and (given the cost of highly skilled surgeons doing the work) expensive which means that is rarely gets done between individual treatments and doctors approaches can differ (raising treatment risks). AI can deliver this at speed and economcially - which speeds up the treatment process and can be repeated.
