Breast cancer might be one of the most common cancers for women, but with screening tools like the Cloud 4 Cancer app, the death rates have been steadily decreasing over the years. Impressively created by a 17 year old high school junior, the Cloud 4 Cancer app is a minimally invasive tool that will help doctors diagnose breast cancer earlier. Although it has been found that the less invasive a test is, the less accurate it is as well, this tool goes against that proof.

Essentially, Brittany Wenger’s Cloud 4 Cancer app works in tangent with Fine Needle Aspirates (FNA) findings to figure out if a mass is malignant or benign. Using an artificial neuron network, which learns just like humans, it improves with every test it takes. Currently, it boasts 99.1% accuracy.
