Problem Statement Input A set of CT scans showing the colon Output Identification of polyps and their location Detected Polyp
Image of page 2
Associated Issues Some polyps resemble colonic folds and walls, leading to false positive detections (53% of detected polyps in NCI database are sessile) The convoluted structure of the colon makes viewing its folds, walls and polyps difficult The presence of residual colonic fluid and stool remnants in the colon obscures the viewing of polyps Normal colon Peduncular polyp Sessile polyp

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
