AI Algorithm May Differentiate Polyps on CT Colonography

FRIDAY, March 5, 2021 -- Machine learning-based image analysis facilitates noninvasive differentiation of benign and premalignant colorectal polyps with computed tomography (CT) colonography, according to a study published online Feb. 23 in...

This article discusses why patients undergo CTC, how the examination is performed, and how patients should prepare. Although CTC primarily is used for the detection of polyps and cancerous tumors, the examination can benefit any patient who requires a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional colonoscopy.PMID:34193583

CONCLUSION: In this study, detection of GWT on CT often indicated pathologies which were subsequently confirmed endoscopically. Pathological findings were detected in 83% of these patients, with approximately 30% determined to be malignant. Endoscopic evaluation is recommended when GWT is reported on a CT scan.PMID:34196189 | DOI:10.34172/aim.2021.41
