Fujitsu publishes views of AI from 300 endoscopists survey

A new survey conducted by Fujitsu has explored the views of 300 endoscopists on the use of artificial intelligence tools in their field.
The survey highlighted 70% of the respondents agreed that AI tools will help to reduce the number of missed lesions and that AI will help to improve patient outcomes. 80% of the group of clinicians surveyed also stated that they would be more likely to use an endoscopy system that supported AI technologies.
Clinician choice over the tools at their disposal for procedures was highlighted as important by almost all respondents (94%).
Respondents to the survey rated image and video quality as the most important features in an endoscopy system, and almost half agreed AI will improve cost savings by reducing the number of unnecessary biopsies and surgeries (49%). However, only one third said it will help to reduce waiting times for patients.
Prof Coron, a physician in Gastroenterology and Hepatology working at the Digestive Diseases Institute of Nantes, said: “For any gastroenterologist, the priority is doing all we can not to miss small lesions or overlook subtle changes in the mucosa. In practice, this means having the right tool for the situation with the best possible optical quality. This is clearly reflected in the survey responses of my peers across Europe.”
“Having had the privilege of trialling a number of different AI technologies in recent years, I am aware that not all technologies are equal. To work without this AI support now feels like driving without a seatbelt, and for my patients, it is a re-assuring option to have a second pair of eyes in the room. They almost always opt for its use.”
“These survey results indicate that in time, high-quality AI will not only be desired, but seen as necessary to deliver the best care for every patient in every theatre.”
