CALL FOR ABSTRACT 12THGHUCG TRACK 14: INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY IN GASTROENTEROLOGY
Innovation & Technology in Gastroenterology
Since 2010, significant advancements have been made in artificial intelligence (AI) and its medical applications. In gastroenterology, artificial intelligence is investigated for endoscopic analysis of lesions, cancer diagnosis, and to aid in the investigation of inflammatory lesions or gastrointestinal bleeding during wireless capsule endoscopy.
distinguish pancreatic cancer patients from those with pancreatitis. AI could potentially be used to build patients’ prognoses and forecast their treatment responses based on many criteria. We examine the ways in which AI may assist clinicians in making a diagnosis or establishing a prognosis, as well as its limits, with the understanding that additional randomised controlled trials will be necessary prior to the approval of AI techniques by the health authorities.
New 8 advancements in GI technology
- The FDA granted 510(k) clearance to the PillCam Small Bowel 3 system for remote endoscopy manufactured by Medtronic.
- MicroTech Endoscopy introduced the LesionHunter cold snare, a polypectomy-advancing cold snare with an ultrathin nitinol wire.
- According to a study, patients who received virtual reality video teaching before to a colonoscopy had improved stool preparation, greater polyp and adenoma detection rates, and increased compliance and satisfaction.
- Health Canada issued a licence to Medronic for its artificial intelligence endoscopy system, GI Genius.
- Virtual Incision has concluded a $46 million seris C fundraising round, which will be used to support the MIRA Surgical Platform.
- Endo Tools Therapeutics of Belgium received FDA approval for their Endomina system for endoscopic suture application and soft tissue approximation.
- Iterative Scopes acquired $150 million in series B funding to develop their gastrointestinal technology powered by artificial intelligence.
- Standard Bariatrics’ Titan SGS surgical stapler has been utilised in over one thousand clinical instances as of January 19.

Some New technologies in endoscopy
Colonography CT CT colonography, also known as virtual colonoscopy, uses a CT scan and computer software to provide an image of the inside of the colon (large intestine). Additionally, images of the remaining intra abdominal organs are taken. These photos can be adjusted to imitate colonoscopy images. Colonoscopy, on the other hand, examines the interior of the colon using a video-equipped scope inserted via the anus and into the colon.
Chromoendoscopy/High Definition Scopes/Narrow Band Imaging
Endoscopic images are advancing in a manner analogous to those of high-definition televisions. A new generation of endoscopes utilising high-definition imaging with amazing detail is being developed. Not only does high definition provide the physician with a sharper image, but the higher resolution of the image also provides additional information. When endoscopists are attempting to identify small polyps, early cancer, and flat lesions, the inclusion of high definition may aid in the detection of these abnormalities.
Fine Needle Aspiration/Endoscopic Ultrasound
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a technology that uses sound waves known as ultrasound during an endoscopic treatment to examine the gastrointestinal tract wall or to look through it. The layers of the gastrointestinal tract wall, the liver, pancreas, lymph nodes, and bile ducts can be viewed using this approach. EUS scopes are identical to conventional endoscopes with the addition of an ultrasonic transducer. Under continuous real-time ultrasound guidance, a tiny needle can be inserted into these structures to retrieve tissue aspirate. This method is referred to as a fine needle aspirate (FNA). The FNA cells can be smeared on a microscope slide and examined for abnormalities such as malignancy. The study of cells is known as cytology.
