Medtronics' AI-assisted colonoscopy (GI Genius) is both FDA and EUA approved

Today, on 28 April 2023, we are situated in a much different way of viewing medicine and biology. AI has taken the stage, allowing for many advancements that the past generations could only dream of. AI-assisted colonoscopy (GI Genius by Medtronics with generative AI applications) can reduce by 50% the missed colon cancer cases, scanning and double-checking the process to offer far more accuracy and quicker results. At look into AI Factory for Medical Imaging, Medtronic’s artificial intelligence for pathology, it is difficult to not feel a sense of awe. With the help of AI, doctors can now quickly process very large amounts of medical images. This can help detect irregularities that a human would not be able to process that fast. Using AI along with medical imaging can help diagnose diseases much faster than the traditional methods and can provide doctors with more accurate results. Currently, Medtronic is developing AI genomics that can analyze gene mutations and suggest different types of treatments for certain mutations. AI-assisted genomics can run through the different types of treatments that have been successfully used to treat a certain gene mutation, and can suggest which drug will be most affective against such mutation. This can help to drastically reduce the amount of trial and error in the medical field and can offer much more accurate treatments. A recent fireside chat with Geoff Martha, CEO of Medtronic, discussed the implications of AI on medical imaging and genomics, especially as it pertains to diagnosing and treating diseases. Martha believes that we are currently in a new era of biology and medical technology with three main areas: digital biology, lab automation and in silico drug discovery. Digital biology uses AI algorithms to classify groups of genes and to look at the entire genome to see how different parts of the DNA code interact with each other. Lab automation uses robotics and AI to automate tasks such as controlling petri dishes, pipetting, and measuring parameters in mediums. Finally, in silico drug discovery uses virtual reality and simulations to quickly run through prospective treatments for genetic diseases.AI is revolutionizing so many aspects of the medical field and is enabling us to diagnose and treat diseases faster and with more accuracy than ever before. With the help of AI-assisted colonoscopy, AI Factory for Medical Imaging, and AI-assisted genomics, we are now able to detect irregularities that traditional methods can’t, suggest accurate treatments for certain gene mutations, and reduce missed colon cancer cases by half. It is an incredible feat of technology and is paving the way for a much brighter future.

AI-assisted colonoscopy can help to better detect more serious symptom that alternative methods may miss
