Real-time, computer-aided detection system significantly improved adenoma detection

Key clinical point: A real-time, computer-aided detection system using artificial intelligence significantly improved adenoma detection during high-definition colonoscopy.

Major finding: The adenoma detection rate was 55% in the computer-aided detection group and 40% in the control group (risk ratio, 1.30; 95% CI, 1.14-1.45).

Data source: Randomized, multicenter clinical trial of 685 adults undergoing screening colonoscopies for colorectal cancer.

Disclosures: Medtronic loaned the equipment for the study. Dr. Repici and the senior author disclosed consulting fees from Medtronic.
