Many patients, and their families, will be familiar with the rigors and demands of medical examinations, and the stress and disruption these can cause to daily life. For medical professionals, too, each procedure takes valuable time away from analysing medical results and other front-line patient support.
Any decrease to the time spent on such procedures is massively beneficial to everyone involved. CHI is an organisation doing just that.
Video capsule endoscopy is a technology used to take pictures of the small and large bowel, avoiding diagnostic colonoscopies — which are invasive and time-consuming. CHI is pioneering the use of AI in the procedure to make capsule endoscopy even more efficient.
