- White-light endoscopy (WLE) is the most pivotal tool to detect gastric cancer in an early stage. However, the skill among endoscopists varies greatly. Here, we aim to develop a deep learning–based system named ENDOANGEL-LD (lesion detection) to assist in detecting all focal gastric lesions and predicting neoplasms by WLE.
- We aimed to develop and validate a deep learning–based system that covers various aspects of early gastric cancer (EGC) diagnosis, including detecting gastric neoplasm, identifying EGC, and predicting EGC invasion depth and differentiation status. Herein, we provide a state-of-the-art comparison of the system with endoscopists using real-time videos in a nationwide human–machine competition.
- Gastric precancerous conditions, including gastric atrophy (GA) and intestinal metaplasia (IM), play an important role in the development of gastric cancer. Image-enhanced endoscopy (IEE) shows great potential in diagnosing gastric precancerous conditions and adenocarcinoma. In this study, a deep convolutional neural network system, named ENDOANGEL, was constructed to detect gastric precancerous conditions by IEE.
- One-fourth of colorectal neoplasia are missed at screening colonoscopy, representing the main cause of interval colorectal cancer. Deep learning systems with real-time computer-aided polyp detection (CADe) showed high accuracy in artificial settings, and preliminary randomized controlled trials (RCTs) reported favorable outcomes in the clinical setting. The aim of this meta-analysis was to summarize available RCTs on the performance of CADe systems in colorectal neoplasia detection.
- Artificial intelligence (AI), specifically deep learning, offers the potential to enhance the field of GI endoscopy in areas ranging from lesion detection and classification to quality metrics and documentation. Progress in this field will be measured by whether AI implementation can lead to improved patient outcomes and more efficient clinical workflow for GI endoscopists. The aims of this article are to report the findings of a multidisciplinary group of experts focusing on issues in AI research and applications related to gastroenterology and endoscopy, to review the current status of the field, and to produce recommendations for investigators developing and studying new AI technologies for gastroenterology.
- The quality of bowel preparation is an important factor that can affect the effectiveness of a colonoscopy. Several tools, such as the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale (BBPS) and Ottawa Bowel Preparation Scale, have been developed to evaluate bowel preparation. However, understanding the differences between evaluation methods and consistently applying them can be challenging for endoscopists. There are also subjective biases and differences among endoscopists. Therefore, this study aimed to develop a novel, objective, and stable method for the assessment of bowel preparation through artificial intelligence.
