Welcome to the Gut Intelligence Lab


Sana Syed, MD, MS

With the rapid advancement of technology, our ability to innovatively interweave mathematics, engineering and computer science in medicine portends enormous potential change for our collective future health. A specific area of application lies in digital pathology and the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for pattern recognition in tissue based disease diagnoses. Gastroenterology relies on histopathology-based diagnoses using tissue from the gut and liver with a growing interest in diagnostic tools such as Probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) and video capsule endoscopy amongst others. However, the deluge of complex images obtained from diagnostic modalities mentioned earlier are heterogeneous requiring a focused approach that produces human-friendly and narrow-detail oriented answers. Our lab with its multi-disciplinary expertise in medicine, engineering and data science is dedicated to revolutionizing the use of AI in gastroenterology.
