Short description

The solution uses algorithms to review the videos of performed colonoscopies to examine the patients’ condition and ensure high quality investigations. After a rigorous data collection process throughout clinical trials the twinning sites are going to create a common database, ensuring comparability between the data collections.

The aim of the twinning is therefore to strengthen further the scientific collaboration between the Danish and Scottish CCE research groups and enable data sharing through established research infrastructures. To achieve this goal of improving datasets, the twinning will build on three streams of work - clinical trials in CCE, technical development, including artificial intelligence, and building of research infrastructure and databases.

To achieve the successful transfer of databases tools such as webinars, study visits and workshops will be used during the preparation, implementation and sustainability phase. This will eventually lead to generate better diagnostics and less invasive procedures as well as to significant cost-efficiencies across the care pathway and the workload of the healthcare professionals.
