Healthy Living: Improving Colonoscopies

There are more than a million colon cancer survivors in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society.

That number is rising because doctors are finding and removing more precancerous polyps during colonoscopies.

In Healthy Living, we learn more about the first “smarter scopes” in the United States. 

Dr. Karnes has tested the A.I. assisted colonoscopies on about 100 patients so far.

He hopes to begin multi-center clinical trials by next June.
