GI Genius is a cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) system used to perform gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures for the diagnosis of colon polyps. It is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Department of Health (DOH) – Abu Dhabi. The AI solution is designed to assist in colonoscopy procedures and offers one of the highest increases in polyp detection compared to other diagnostic technologies, thus minimizing the risk of fatalities from colon cancer by 50%.
This unique equipment is operated by our physicians and utilizes technology similar to augmented reality. Our gastroenterologists have extensive experience in using this technology and maneuver the endoscope using the AI system as a supplemental guide to identify and remove polyps, some of which are often difficult to detect.
