The explosion of artificial intelligence has permeated through basically all walks of life, including medicine.
In an abstract presented during the 2023 Digestive Disease Week (DDW) in Chicago, a group of investigators focused on using artificial intelligence to help better detect a significantly higher number of adenomas following colonoscopies.
In the study, investigators used the CAD-Eye system to detect polyps in patients aged 45 years and older.
The results of the 1033 person study show the computer assisted colonoscopy resulted in a significantly higher adenoma per colonoscopy (APC) compared to the standard colonoscopy.
In an interview with HCPLive®, Linda S. Lee, MD, Director of Endoscopy, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, explained how the results show utilizing artifical intelligence could be a way to better increase accuracy in cancer screenings.
