A survey conducted by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), involving 165 gastroenterologists and gastrointestinal surgeons in the APAC region, reveals that eight in ten say they accept and trust the use of AI-powered tools in diagnosing and assessing colorectal polyps, which are benign growths in the colon that could become cancerous.

Seven in 10 furthermore said they accept and trust using AI to guide an endoscopist on whether to remove polyps found in the bowel of those undergoing screening colonoscopy.

The study found that gastroenterologists with fewer than 10 years of clinical experience perceived a higher risk of AI-powered tools than their counterparts with more than 10 years of experience.
