Capturing Cancer Through CTCs
Machine learning can help optimize liquid biopsy for rare circulating tumor cells
Michael Schubert | | Quick Read
What if you could offer patients with cancer all the benefits of a biopsy – without the biopsy? That compelling idea – precision medicine with no need for invasive investigations – is what makes liquid biopsy such an attractive prospect. Unfortunately, there’s a catch; circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are rare, presenting a detection challenge whose only solutions can be difficult and time-consuming. To expand the available options, one research collaboration has taken a new direction: computer assistance.
