Bengaluru March 27, 2023: FUJIFILM India, a pioneer in healthcare imaging and information systems has launched an upgraded version of “CAD EYE™” for diagnosis in stomach and esophagus. The product was launched in National event “GI Update 2023” at Mysuru. Fujifilm has introduced this technology for the first time outside Japan.
The CAD EYETM is an empowering tool based on Artificial Intelligence Technology which assists Gastroenterologists in early detection and characterization of abnormal growth in Gastrointestinal tract. This is the second chapter to the already existing AI diagnostic technology available for detection in colon.
The newly launched AI technology will work on three different visualization modes: White light, LCI (Linked colour Imaging) and BLI (Blue light Imaging). LCI mode is a combination of light settings which can visually enhance any abnormal lesion and inflammation. BLI mode magnifies the detected growth for better pattern analysis of cells. This technology is designed to solve two major screening problems- Lesion oversight (The lesions are in the view but cannot be detected) and Blind spots (Missing lesions when not in observation range). Landmark Photo Checker is the newest advancement that assists the proper observation of the major landmarks in the stomach. This assists the practitioner to navigate lesions in less time, which might be missed with conventional methods that eventually helps in saving lives.
Speaking about the new launch, Mr. Koji Wada, Managing Director, FUJIFILM India said, “Fujifilm India has always been at the forefront of healthcare innovation.
