AI-Assisted Polyp Detection  

Detect more adenomas during colonoscopy: boost your GI practice's standard of care 

With SKOUT™, a novel computer aided detection (CADe) device

Screening and surveillance of colorectal cancer — the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States and Europe.1,2— is vital to decreasing its incidence(8).

SKOUT™ uses advanced computer-vision technology that recognizes potentially suspicious colorectal polyps and provides gastroenterologists with real-time feedback, with the goal of early lesion detection.

 

Enhance adenoma detection

With innovative technology backed by robust clinical data

  • SKOUT was evaluated in the largest multicenter US-based clinical study (as of July 2022) for a computer aided detection (CADe) device.8

  • SKOUT demonstrated a 27% relative increase in adenomas per colonoscopy (APC)—with an average of 1 additional adenoma resected for every 4.5 patients examined.8

  • SKOUT improves detection of clinically significant lesions, including polyps in the proximal colon.8

Seamlessly integrate SKOUT into your clinical workflow

The SKOUT user interface is intuitive, and designed with the physician in mind

  • When a polyp is detected, a bounding box appears and tracks the polyp as it moves across the visual field.

  • If a medical tool enters the frame, the bounding box automatically disappears to avoid obstructing the physician’s view.

  • With minimal interruption to video flow, users can easily switch between a standard feed and a SKOUT feed. 

  • SKOUT does not increase total procedure or withdrawal time.8
