The future is now

Learn about artificial intelligence in gastroenterology


GI Genius™ intelligent endoscopy 
module is AI-assisted colonoscopy.

The first FDA cleared, AI-assisted colonoscopy for polyp detection. 

The GI Genius™ system can detect polyps of different shapes and morphologies in real-time colonoscopy.1

Clinical benefits of GI Genius™ system include:

  • Seamless integration and universal compatibility to major brands 
  • Potentially increase ADR2,3



Each 1% increase
in adenoma detection rate (ADR) is
associated with a

3%
decrease of interval cancer risks.2

Learn about how we can strengthen our success rate for colonoscopies through the use of artificial intelligence in gastroenterology.

   

 

We're leading the way with artificial intelligence ― so should you.

At Medtronic Gastrointestinal, we’re reimagining the future and the now — to transform healthcare.


AI-assisted colonoscopy is available today with the GI Genius™ system. 

Screening is one of the best opportunities to prevent colorectal cancer or diagnose it early, when it’s most treatable. That’s where the GI Genius™ intelligent endoscopy module can make an impact.

The GI Genius™ system is designed to assist colonoscopy in real-time by using visual markers to alert physicians of potential colorectal lesions.

Studies have shown:

  • Overall sensitivity per lesion of 99.7%1
  • 82% faster than the average endoscopist at detecting polyps1
  • 14% absolute increase in ADR3

The system is trained with a dataset of 13 million polyp images of various shapes and sizes4

     

AI-assisted colonoscopy
may reduce adenoma
miss rates (AMR) by nearly
50%
demonstrated by the first
multi-center randomized
clinical trial looking at AMR5

The importance of explainability in AI

As AI emerges into GI, the question on endoscopists’ minds should be “How do I know which AI system to use?” Explainability means that how AI has been designed, and how it works, should make sense to the people using it. The if/then logic should be clear so users can understand how it’s making decisions about what information is input and what resulting information is output. This transparency is essential for establishing trust and ensuring accuracy.
