Doctors have a new tool to find breast cancer. It is called Google Health. It uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to find anything strange in breast tissue. Researchers trained an AI program to do this. It read thousands of X-ray results from the past decade. Doctors currently use X-rays to find breast cancer. Google Health will help doctors to read X-rays more accurately. Currently, two doctors agree if an X-ray shows cancer. Google Health will do this more quickly.

Google Health worked with experts from a London university. They input X-rays from more than 91,000 women into its software. In hospital tests, the software did better at reading X-rays than six doctors. Google Health said: "Our team is really proud....We are on our way to developing a tool that can help doctors spot breast cancer with greater accuracy." The World Cancer Research Fund said there were two million new cases of breast cancer in 2019.
