The use of “pill cams” (cameras embedded within ingestible capsules) to take pictures of a patient’s digestive tract began almost 20 years ago. It was a huge win to find some very difficult to detect disease, bleeds, obstructions, and more.
But, that only solved the problem of getting to the problem. The process still requires hours of downloading pictures from the cam (several hours at 6-12 pictures per second!) and then the physician sitting in front of the computer screen, watching the frames, looking for any irregularity.
Ray Bengermino of AnX Robotica joins the GCP to introduce the Navicam. In essence this capsule takes the pictures and integrates with AI for detection of anomalies and suspicious appearing tissue. This quickly directs the attention of the physician to enhance his detection of disease. And it is a perfect blend of AI assist. The physician retains full access to exam all of the images, but the AI functions as a team member for the doctor to spend more time evaluating the lesions and less time “hunting” for them.
Join Ken & Eric as they discuss the cam and how AI can work to benefit the patient.
