New Artificial Intelligence software built in Japan can detect bowel cancer in patients in less than a second, researchers have claimed.
The system can accurately pin point cancer in less than a second by recognising cancerous polyps in endoscopy images, experts said.
The results of the research carried out by Showa University in Yokohama, Japan were presented at United European Gastroenterology Week in Barcelona, Spain.
Scientists revealed how the AI system was presented with 306 images of colorectal polyps – growths found in the bowel in 250 men and women.
Taking less than a second to analyse each image, the AI system was able to correctly identify malignant cases.
