Using Artificial Intelligence to Assess Ulcerative Colitis

Researchers from Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) have developed an artificial intelligence system that effectively evaluates endoscopic mucosal findings from patients with ulcerative colitis without the need for biopsy collection.
Assessments of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), which is a type of inflammatory bowel disease, are usually conducted via endoscopy and histology. But now, researchers from Japan have developed a system that may be more accurate than existing methods and may reduce the need for these patients to undergo invasive medical procedures. In a study published this February in Gastroenterology, researchers from Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) have revealed a newly developed artificial intelligence (AI) system that can evaluate endoscopic findings of UC with an accuracy equivalent to that of expert endoscopists.
Accurate evaluations are critical in providing optimal care for patients wi…

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) 
Heartburn happens, but if it occurs regularly, you may need to be evaluated for GERD. A medical provider can often diagnose GERD based on a description of symptoms alone, but if the problem has been ongoing for some time, additional diagnostic testing may be necessary to evaluate if the disease has caused damage to the esophagus. GERD most often presents as heartburn, but uncontrolled GERD can erode the lining of the esophagus and lead to bleeding. The condition can also cause pain in the chest so extreme that it is sometimes mistaken for a heart attack. Controlling GERD usually begins with simple lifestyle changes, including avoiding food for at least two hours before bedtime. Over-the-counter remedies can also provide some short-term relief for occasional heartburn, but for chronic or serious GERD, a prescription medication or even surgery may be necessary.

Treatments for functional gastrointestinal disorders differ based on what symptom is affecting the patient the most. Parenteral nutrition may be prescribed for children who …
Video Capsule Endoscopy Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), utilizes a camera appended to a long adaptable tube to see the upper bit of the gastrointestinal tract, in particular the oesophagus, the stomach and the start of the initial segment of the small digestive tract called the duodenum, and a colonoscope, embedded through the rectum, can see the colon and the distal bit of the small digestive system, the terminal ileum, be that as it may, these two kinds of endoscopy can't envision most of the center segment of the small digestive tract. Case endoscopy is utilized to inspect portions of the gastrointestinal tract that can't be seen with different kinds of endoscopy. It is helpful when infection is suspected in the small digestive system, and can once in a while be utilized to discover the site of gastrointestinal draining or the reason for unexplained stomach torment, for example, Crohn's ailment.
