Building an AI Support Tool for Real-Time Ulcerative Colitis Diagnosis

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease decreasing life quality through symptoms such as bloody diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Endoscopy is a cornerstone of diagnosis and monitoring of UC. The Mayo endoscopic subscore (MES) index is the standard for measuring UC severity during endoscopic evaluation. However, the MES is subject to high inter-observer variability leading to misdiagnosis and suboptimal treatment. We propose using a machine-learning based MES classification system to support the endoscopic process and to mitigate the observer-variability. The system runs real-time in the clinic and augments doctors’ decision-making during the endoscopy. This project report outlines the process of designing, creating and evaluating our system. We describe our initial evaluation, which is a combination of a standard non-clinical model test and a first clinical test of the system on a real patient.
