INDIA – Fujifilm has expanded its endoscopy portfolio with the launch of CAD EYE function for Upper Gastrointestinal diagnosis in India.

This empowering tool, based on Artificial Intelligence Technology, can assist gastroenterologists in the early detection and characterization of abnormal growth in the gastrointestinal tract.

According to Fujifilm, CAD EYE Upper GI is the upgraded version of CAD EYE for diagnosis in stomach and esophagus, an AI-driven system for real-time colon polyp detection and characterisation.

Landmark Photo Checker is the newest advancement that assists the proper observation of the major landmarks in the stomach,” the company said in a release.

The latest version of CAD EYE can assist the medical practitioner to navigate lesions in less time, which might be missed with conventional methods.

Leveraging AI diagnostic technology, the CAD EYE Upper GI has three different visualization modes, namely White light, LCI (Linked colour Imaging), and BLI (Blue light Imaging).

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),” Fujifilm

LCI mode is a combination of light settings that can visually enhance any abnormal lesion and inflammation while BLI mode magnifies the detected growth for better pattern analysis of cells.

Both image processing technologies utilize specific wavelengths of light to help the practitioner to take the accurate biopsy sample in less time for appropriate lab diagnosis, and ultimately save lives.

Additionally, this endoscopic solution will help to strengthen the health standards in India and empower the gastro fraternity to improve patient outcomes with world-class technology.

On his part, Mr. Koji Wada, Managing Director of FUJIFILM India underscored: “Fujifilm India has always been at the forefront of healthcare innovation.”

He said that with the launch of CAD EYE Upper GI in India, the company aspires to provide superior technological medical facilities that can encourage patients to be more engaged in their personal care.

In line with our vision to provide the best-in-class technology, our aim is to never stop innovating and working towards making India a healthier place to live in,” asserted Mr. Wada.
