USA Health is the only health system in the region to offer enhanced colonoscopy screenings with the aid of the GI GeniusTM intelligent endoscopy module. The GI GeniusTM module employs artificial intelligence (AI) to help physicians detect polyps — a powerful new ally in the fight against colorectal cancer.

The GI GeniusTM module uses advanced AI software to highlight suspicious polyps with a visual marker in real time, serving as the gastroenterologist’s ever-vigilant second observer with a sensitivity rate per lesion of 99.7%. Studies have shown that AI-assisted colonoscopy can increase polyp detection rates, and every 1% increase in adenoma detection rate reduces the risk of colorectal cancer by 3%. Colorectal cancer is the third most common form of cancer diagnosed in the U.S., with almost 150,000 new cases every year.
