Medtronic and Nvidia collaborate on AI tools for endoscopy

By staff writers

March 22, 2023 -- Medtronic and Nvidia plan to collaborate on integrating artificial intelligence (AI) software applications into Medtronic's GI Genius intelligent endoscopy module.

Developed and manufactured by Cosmo Pharmaceuticals, GI Genius is the first AI-assisted colonoscopy tool approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help physicians detect polyps that can develop into colorectal cancer, the companies said.

GI Genius has been designed to host a suite of AI algorithms. Integrating Nvidia's Clara healthcare platform, for instance, could allow Medtronic to scale development of algorithms for real-time procedures, potentially accelerating AI innovation for better patient care, Medtronic noted.
