AIQEN – Artificial Intelligence for Quality in Endoscopy
Endoscopy is an examination of the gastrointestinal tract. Gastroscopy and colonoscopy are most common. During gastroscopy, the mucosa of the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum is examined, while during colonoscopy, the rectum and colon are examined. During the examination, it is easy to miss abnormalities because the intestine has many folds and is constantly moving. The examinations can also be experienced as intrusive and painful.
We research development and evaluation of AI software. The purpose is to help the endoscopist detect all mucosal changes.
We also research AI for capsule endoscopy (camera pill). Hopefully, the method will replace many gastroscopies and colonoscopies, which means that patients will experience less discomfort from the examinations and that the healthcare system will save resources.
