Advances in Artificial Intelligence to Reduce Polyp Miss Rates during Colonoscopy

by   Michael Yeung, et al.

BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT: Artificial intelligence has the potential to aid gastroenterologists by reducing polyp miss detection rates during colonoscopy screening for colorectal cancer. NEW FINDINGS: We introduce a new deep neural network architecture, the Focus U-Net, which achieves state-of-the-art performance for polyp segmentation across five public datasets containing images of polyps obtained during colonoscopy. LIMITATIONS: The model has been validated on images taken during colonoscopy but requires validation on live video data to ensure generalisability. IMPACT: Once validated on live video data, our polyp segmentation algorithm could be integrated into colonoscopy practice and assist gastroenterologists by reducing the number of polyps missed
