Improving the detection rate of difficult to discover lesions has been one of the major challenges within the field of endoscopy in recent years. Fujifilm has continuously worked on the development of image processing technologies such as Linked Color Imaging (LCI) and Blue Light Imaging (BLI) utilising specific wavelengths of light to support early cancer detection and characterisation.
Recently Fujifilm has developed a new technology known as “CAD EYE” to support colonic polyp detection and characterisation during colonoscopy, utilising Fujifilm’s medical AI technology named REiLI. CAD EYE is a customised detection and characterisation support compatible with the ELUXEO and ELUXEO Lite system.
CAD EYE SUPPORTS DETECTION AND CHARACTERISATION CUSTOMISED FOR ELUXEO USERS
CAD EYE has been developed utilising AI deep learning technology and is compatible with Fujifilm’s ELUXEO™ endoscopy series to support endoscopic lesion detection and characterisation in the colon.
CAD EYE has been trained with a powerful supercomputer located in Fujifilm’s global AI technology centre in Tokyo, utilising an immense amount of clinical images using Fujifilm endoscopy systems. As a result, CAD EYE is a customised detection and characterisation support compatible with the ELUXEO™ system.CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION
POWERFUL IN MULTIPLE SITUATIONS
REAL TIME DETECTION
CAD EYE is aimed to improve the real time polyp detection rate to expert level, helping to recognise flat lesions, multiple polyps simultaneously as well as any lesions at the corner of the image. CAD EYE Detection is possible with White Light and LCI (Linked Color Imaging) mode.
White Light Mode
Once a suspected polyp is detected by CAD EYE Detection (WLI or LCI), CAD EYE Characterisation - in combination with BLI – can support endoscopists in the diagnosis of the polyp. This function analyses in real-time and without freezing or zooming if a polyp is hyperplastic or neoplastic, which is visually indicated by the use of different colour codes in the Position Map. CAD EYE Characterisation is aimed to make procedures more efficient by increasing the accuracy of diagnosis to expert-level.*
BLI Mode – Neoplastic
BLI Mode – Hyperplastic
*According to the validation study, the accuracy of non experts with the assistance of CAD EYE Characterisation was equivalent to that of an expert.
The development of the interface has been designed to enable comfortable procedures. It does not interfere with clinical images and minimises required eye movement. Its display is designed to be simple and intuitive for excellent support during long hours in the examination room.
Displays the area where the suspicious polyp is detected.
