2. Promotes interventional insights
One of the most promising applications of artificial intelligence in healthcare is its integration in diagnostic imaging analysis. By using AI to analyse images gathered during a scan, physicians can identify conditions more quickly, promoting early intervention. We incorporate AI and image analysis in the GI Genius™ intelligent endoscopy module, the first computer-aided detection system to use AI to identify pre-cancerous and cancerous colorectal polyps during a colonoscopy. The system works by scanning every visual frame of the procedure in real time and alerting physicians to the presence of lesions — including small, flat polyps that can easily go undetected by the human eye. By detecting and removing these polyps, clinicians reduce the odds of patients developing colorectal cancer.
The first trial of GI Genius™ in the United States demonstrated how the technology is having a profound impact on physicians’ ability to find precancerous polyps during a colonoscopy. The study, published in Gastroenterology, the official medical journal of the American Gastroenterologists Association, showed that GI Genius reduced missed colorectal polyps by 50% when compared to a standard colonoscopy.3 It’s AI that empowers physicians to optimally care for patients.
We were proud to announce, in partnership with the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the first Artificial Intelligence Research Award valued at €1.5 Million, to help the detection of colorectal cancer.
