Artificial Intelligence May Help to Classify Colorectal Polyps


Article Excerpt: Researchers at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, recruited 15 pathologists to analyze and classify specimens of the four most common types of colorectal polyps from 100 slides. In one session, about half the doctors used the AI-augmented digital system while the others used just a microscope. After a 12-week break, each group switched techniques and read the same slides again. The pathologists accurately classified the samples 73.9% of the time when using just a microscope and 80.8% when they used the AI-augmented digital system… “This is about helping pathologists make this subtype classification more accurately and more efficiently,” says Saeed Hassanpour, an associate professor at the Geisel School of Medicine who was the senior author of the study.
