Core Tip

Core Tip: Artificial intelligence (AI) is an important part of the information technology revolution. AI can be used in the following three aspects: (1) Gastroscopy for gastric cancer (GC) can improve the diagnostic accuracy of early GC and reduce the missed diagnosis of atypical parts of advanced GC; (2) Imaging doctor determination of the location of the lymph nodes. More importantly, it can more effectively determine lymph node metastasis of GC; and (3) Improving robotic surgical systems and further reducing patient injuries, by advancing from minimally invasive to nearly non-invasive surgery.
