The ideal screening method would be non or minimally invasive, highly accurate, sensitive, and specific. Colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) can be regarded as minimally invasive alternative to conventional colonoscopy, particularly in the setting of colorectal cancer screening.
Our group has recently published an article in the renowned journal Techniques of Coloproctology describing the development of an artificial intelligence algorithm for automatic detection of colonic protruding lesions. Our tool demonstrated high performance results, with a sensitivity of 90.7%, a specificity of 92.6% and an area under the curve of 0.97. The application of artificial intelligence algorithms may play a decisive role in potentiating the role of CCE has a reliable and widely accepted screening method for colorectal cancer.
ESCP 2021 Virtual
16th European Society of Coloproctology Scientific Meeting
Our team was present at the ESCP 2021 Virtual, the 16th annual meeting of European Society of Coloproctology. The work entitled “Artificial intelligence for automatic diagnosis of protruding lesions in colon capsule endoscopy: a multicentric study” was selected for oral presentation in this meeting, which annually gathers the most prominent figures of European coloproctology. Summary of presented works:
- Artificial intelligence for automatic diagnosis of protruding lesions in colon capsule endoscopy: a multicentric study;
- Artificial intelligence for automatic detection of colonic luminal blood in colon capsule endoscopy using a convolutional neural network: a multicentric study
- Automatic detection of blood and other significant colonic lesions in colon capsule endoscopy: a multicentric study.
