Summary 

Real-Time Histology of Colonic Polyps with Augmented Visualization
Termed real-time histology (RTH), the method is an in situ Computer-Aided Diagnostic (CADx) approach that increases the transparency and interpretability of results by generating an intuitive augmented visualization of predicted histology. Using deep learning models, polyps are first segmented into multiple regions, each of which are classified independently and then aggregated to generate a histology map along the polyp surface. The system encodes this spatial information with shades of red to represent high-confidence neoplastic assessments, shades of yellow to represent low-confidence assessments, and shades of green to represent high-confidence non-neoplastic assessments. This color-coded information provides an augmented visualization of polyp histologic prediction in real time, delivering an intuitive visual map for clinicians to quickly assess whether a polyp should be further investigated and removed.
