Virtua Health adds GI Genius to 5 hospitals

Marlton, N.J.-based Virtua Health is now using Medtronic's GI Genius endoscopy module at five of its hospitals, KYW Newsradio reported July 1. 

The module, which uses artificial intelligence to highlight small polyps on a computer monitor, acts as an extra set of eyes for physicians when screening for colon cancer. 

The use of GI Genius can increase detection rates for polyps that may be the beginnings of cancer, according to the report. It is estimated every 1 percent increase in detection has the potential to reduce the risk of cancer by 3 percent, according to the health system.
