Selfie app 'spots early signs of pancreatic cancer'
Publication/Creation DateSeptember 1 2017
DescriptionA team of medical clinicians and computer scientists have teamed up to create an app designed to spot early signs of pancreatic cancer.
The disease, which killed Apple's co-founder Steve Jobs, is one of the hardest types of cancer to treat, but detecting and treating it early can make a big difference to survival rates.
The BiliScreen app is still in development at the University of Washington but is due to be presented at a computing conference later this month.
