Southern New Hampshire Health announces that it is the first in the Southern New Hampshire region to offer enhanced colonoscopies with the GI Genius™ intelligent endoscopy module. The technology uses artificial intelligence to help physicians detect potentially precancerous polyps. Patients can now schedule a colonoscopy with GI Genius™ at Foundation Gastroenterology.
“With this new technology, we can provide even greater excellence in care to our patients. Using this technology, we have an improved ability to see and remove potentially pre-cancerous polyps,” said John V. Flannery, Jr., MD, a colorectal surgeon with Southern NH Health. “The goal is to detect the potential for cancer as early as possible for the best outcome for our patients. We always look for leading edge technology to accomplish this goal. I am proud to offer this new technology to our patients.”
According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths for men and women combined, and colorectal cancer is expected to be the cause of approximately 52,550 deaths during 2023. Early detection is essential to preventing colorectal cancer, but polyps can be difficult to see and physicians vary in their ability to detect and remove polyps. The GI Genius™ module uses advanced visualization and AI software to highlight polyps.
