Artificial intelligence can help gastroenterologists identify colorectal polyps, bleeding and angioectasias accurately, according to Sushovan Guha, MD, PhD, of the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix.

Dr. Guha shared insights on AI's impact on gastroenterology with the American Gastroenterological Association:

1. Clinicians are slow to adopt new tools, creating a potential barrier to widespread adoption of AI technology.

2. Regulatory processes move at a slower pace than technological change. However, the FDA is ramping up its regulation process to accommodate AI technology advancements.

3. The AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology is actively researching how AI could improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.
