AI based system to detect colorectal cancer using colonoscopy images- IIT- Guwahati

A team of researchers from Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IITG), along with scientists from renowned research institutes around the world, have designed an automated Artificial Intelligence-based system to detect colorectal cancer using colonoscopy images.
Results of the work have recently been published in a prestigious journal belonging to the Nature group – Scientific Reports, according to a release issued by the institute.
The team of researchers from IIT, Guwahati was led by Professor Manas Kamal Bhuyan of the Electronics and Electrical Engineering Department, it said.
The paper has been co-authored by Dr Kangkana Bora of Cotton University, Guwahati, Dr Kunio Kasugai of Aichi Medical University, Japan, Prof Zhongming Zhao from the University of Texas, Health Science Centre, Houston, USA, and Dr Saurav Mallik of Harvard University, USA have also contributed to the study.
‘We have developed an innovative automated system that can help the physician rapidly and accurately detect colorectal cancer from colonoscopy images,’ Bhuyan said.
This is important because it prevents delays in diagnosis and saves valuable time that can be spent on devising management and treatment strategies for the patient.
