Results of a prospective study just released demonstrate that an artificial intelligence (AI) technology solution from Proscia can automatically detect melanoma with a high degree of accuracy.
Conducted at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia and the University of Florida, the study assessed the the real-world performance of Proscia’s technology on an uncurated set of 1,422 sequential skin biopsies. The technology correctly identified invasive melanoma and melanoma in situ with a sensitivity of 93% and a specificity of 91%. It also classified basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma with an AUC of .97 and .95, respectively, accounting for a combined 97% of all skin cancers. This study validated the results of a multi-site retrospective study of 12,784 images, which will be presented during the Computational Challenges in Digital Pathology Workshop at the 2021 International Conference on Computer Vision.
