NEW DELHI: Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi in collaboration with Bengaluru-based Aindra Systems have developed an artificial intelligence-powered point-of-care device to screen for cervical cancer by analysing microscopy images .

The research was undertaken by a team led by Anil Sao and Arnav Bhavsar, professors at IIT Mandi along with research scholars -Srishti Gautam and Krati Gupta. The team, along with the industry collaborators, has developed AI-based algorithms that enables the device to undertake automatic screening for cervical cancer.

“The difference between a conventional system and Aindra’s point-of-care system is that, the latter is portable and can be taken to the potential patients. In the conventional system, the people have to visit the pathology laboratory to get themselves screened,” Bhavsar said. The researchers have already applied for international patent for this solution.
