An artificial intelligence (AI) tool tested in UK hospitals managed to spot small signs of breast cancer in 11 women that had gone unnoticed by doctors.

The tool, called Mia, was tested in several health centers in the UK and analyzed nearly 10,000 mammograms.

Most of them showed no signs of cancer, but the tool managed to spot those who did, including 11 patients who hadn't been diagnosed by doctors.

In their early stages, cancers can be extremely small and difficult to detect.
