Researchers at Riken and the National Cancer Center in Japan have successfully used artificial intelligence (AI) to spot early-stage stomach cancer on endoscopic images with high accuracy.

The researchers collected 100 endoscopic images of early-stage stomach cancer and 100 images of normal stomach tissue to test the deep-learning AI.

The team says the AI was able to determine whether an endoscopic image showed early-stage cancer or normal stomach tissue in 0.004 seconds. In addition, the algorithm correctly identified cancer in 80% of cancer images, and confirmed normal tissues with 95% accuracy.

The researcher team hopes eventually to provide AI to doctors, to support their efforts in making diagnoses.
