Artificial Intelligence Improves Colonoscopy

The use of artificial intelligence can increase the accuracy and sensitivity of adenoma detection during colonoscopy, even for small lesions, a new study shows. The results were discussed by Dr. William Karnes of the University of California at Irvine at the World Congress of Gastroenterology at ACG 2017. Dr. Yuichi Mori of Showa University in Shinagawa-ku, Japan, reported at United European Gastroenterology Week 2017 that the EndoBRAIN computer-aided system yielded an automatic diagnosis of a lesion during colonoscopy and had a high polyp detection rate.
