NEC has been working with the National Cancer Center Japan since 2016 to contribute to resolving this issue. NEC has now developed software that can automatically mark potential lesions based on the use of AI to learn from endoscopic images of more than 10,000 lesions, as well as learning from the observations of expert physicians (*4). This software was developed by applying NEC’s AI technologies, “NEC the WISE,” and its face recognition technology, which is highly evaluated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (*5) in the United States.

Software features include the following:

1. Compatibility with the endoscopy systems of three leading companies and usability in any examination room

This software can be connected to endoscopes from three leading endoscope manufacturers (*6). By simply connecting an existing endoscope to a monitor and terminal equipped with the software, users can start using it immediately. Moreover, since it is compatible with various endoscopes and easy to prepare, systems can be transferred within different rooms and used efficiently wherever there is an examination.

2. High visibility and flexible interface

The system marks the lesion candidates with a notification sound and marking. Notification sounds, volume, and marker colors can be customized at any time to the user’s preference. The system can be operated intuitively with a high-visibility user interface, allowing users to smoothly proceed with examinations.

Going forward, as a company that creates social value, NEC aims to promote a healthy, and sustainable society, where individuals can thrive from the utilization of advanced IT technologies.
