Artificial intelligence is helping doctors work smarter and revolutionizing the healthcare industry with the use of GI Genius, a tool that serves as a second set of eyes for physicians during colonoscopy procedures. Health experts believe that the real winners are patients.
Artificial intelligence is revolutionizing the healthcare industry, and it is now being used in colonoscopies to help detect and treat colon cancer early. Experts say that about a third of the 160,000 people diagnosed with colon cancer die each year, but those deaths are preventable if the cancer is detected early through screenings like a colonoscopy. Now, three clinics on Oahu are the first to use artificial intelligence in colonoscopies with the use of GI Genius, an FDA-approved artificial intelligence device that helps physicians work smarter. Unlike humans, computers do not get tired or distracted, and they can cross-reference images in real-time with a database of 13 million images of polyps of all shapes and sizes. This helps to cut the miss rate in half, just by adding GI Genius to colonoscopy procedures. It provides an additional layer of technology to help doctors and nurses detect any abnormalities in the patient's body, and ultimately, the real winners are patients. Patients above the age of 45 should be receiving colonoscopy screenings, even if they do not have symptoms. The use of artificial intelligence in colonoscopies is a game-changer, and it is raising the bar for colon cancer detection. Patients can now have peace of mind, knowing that there is an additional layer of technology helping doctors and nurses during the procedure. Artificial intelligence is the future of healthcare, and it is exciting to see how it is being used to revolutionize the industry and ultimately save lives.
