Cervical Cancer Screening

$79 / year

The Clinical Trials Registry and Results Database compiles information on publicly and privately supported clinical trial studies on a wide range of diseases and conditions. Its main goal is to provide an easy access to both privately and publicly funded clinical trials information for patients, their family members, healthcare professionals, researchers, and the public.

Complexity

Despite the possibility of prevention with regular cytological screening, cervical cancer is one of the significant causes of mortality in low-income countries killing more than a quarter of a million cases per year. This is because resources are very limited and patients have poor adherence to routine screening due to lack of awareness. In addition, prediction of individual patient’s risk and best screening strategy during diagnosis has become a challenge with the existence of several diagnostic methods and physician’s subjective preferences, usually based on expertise and comfort. Hence, prediction of cervical cancer using automated methods or computed aided diagnosis (CAD) system would require data from each source – modality and expertise.

This study was conducted to create a predictive model of transfer learning (TL) from one source to another, such as modality to an expert, in order to accurately predict risk for cervical cancer and consequently diagnose cervical cancer among patients.
