A team of scientists in South China's Guangdong province has taken the steps to become the first in the world to treat nasopharyngeal cancer with artificial intelligence (AI) technology, announced the Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center on Tuesday.

In collaboration with the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the center, based in the provincial capital city, Guangzhou, said it has realized automated tumor target contouring on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) pictures of carcinoma patients thanks to AI technology. Thus, the efficiency and accuracy of radiation therapy on the tumor can be greatly enhanced.
