Automatic Polyp Detection System
The APDS- Automatic Polyp Detection System - is designed to aid physicians when performing colonoscopy examinations and to increase the Polyp Detection Rate (PDR) and the Adenoma (one of the Polyp types) Detection Rate (ADR).
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States. Early detection is a key factor in its prevention and has been proven to decrease both the development and the mortality rate of the disease.
Colonoscopy test is considered the gold standard in CRC screening and prevention. It is the most recommended, effective and common screening test for early detection of the disease.
Unfortunately today 20-30% of the polyps are missed during these exams, in many cases develop into late stage interval cancer.
Polyp Detection Rate (PDR) and Adenoma Detection Rate (ADR) is ultimately linked to survival rate. More can be seen here.
APDS-OFL is a software that runs in offline mode on pre-recorded colonoscopy videos. The unit can automatically upload the videos from a predefined library and scan each one for missed polyps. The system edits a short video clip containing the areas where suspicious tissue is detected. The system serves a second net, allowing to minimize the miss rate and reducing the occurrence of interval cancer.
APDS- RT is the main product, a software that runs on Magentiq's local device and server and gets the video feed from the endoscopic camera used by the physician in real time. The system alerts the doctor on suspicious areas, by highlighting the suspected polyp on the main video screen . The doctor can quickly zoom in to take a closer look and decide if indeed a removal of the tissue is required.
