Objectives: The overarching objective of this proposal is to develop, validate, and deploy an artificial intelligence (AI)-based low-cost platform to make endoscopic prevention of colorectal cancer (CRC) more efficient. We seek to leverage our work in spectroscopic biopsy tools and automated endoscopic imaging interpretation to create an accurate and widely-adoptable, real-time histology (RTH) platform based on combined optical modalities and machine learning. At present, colonoscopic CRC preven...
