The role of artificial intelligence in colon polyps detection
Gastroenterology and Hepatology from Bed to Bench,
Over the past few decades, artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved dramatically and is believed to have a significant impact on all aspects of technology and daily life. The use of AI in the healthcare system has been rapidly growing, owing to the large amount of data. Various methods of AI including machine learning, deep learning and convolutional neural network (CNN) have been used in diagnostic imaging, which have helped physicians in the accurate diagnosis of diseases and determination of appropriate treatment for them. Using and collecting a huge number of digital images and medical records has led to the creation of big data over a time period. Currently, considerations regarding the diagnosis of various presentations in all endoscopic procedures and imaging findings are solely handled by endoscopists. Moreover, AI has shown to be highly effective in the field of gastroenterology in terms of diagnosis, prognosis, and image processing. Herein, this review aimed to discuss different aspects of AI use for early detection and treatment of gastroenterology diseases.
