Artificial intelligence software supporting physicians in colonoscopy diagnostic tasks (ID9)Keywords:
Medicine and preventive healthcare can benefit significantly from AI-based systems as attested by the case of an oncological centre in central Germany.
Footage taken during a colonoscopy with the colonoscope’s built-in camera is analysed using AI detection software. Due to the grave importance of an accurate diagnosis, AI complements but cannot replace the primary role of physicians in patient care.
Nonetheless, AI opens up a world of opportunity for remote doctors consultations, surgical robots, long-distance care and the use of automated systems to deliver medicine.
