Application: Analysis of in-vivo images using connected graph components (Patent ID: US20230397794A1)

The patent filed by Medtronic Plc describes a system for analyzing in-vivo images captured by a capsule endoscope to identify pathology indicators. The system utilizes machine learning models to form connected graph components based on the images, process them to determine if they contain the same pathology indicator occurrence, and provide scores associated with the images for review. The system also includes features such as analyzing image pairs, determining graph characteristics, and presenting results to reviewers through a user interface.

The method outlined in the patent involves accessing in-vivo images of the gastrointestinal tract, forming connected graph components based on the images, processing them with machine learning models to determine pathology indicator occurrences, and associating scores with the images for review. The method includes steps like analyzing image pairs, determining graph characteristics, and communicating results to reviewers through a user interface. By utilizing these techniques, the system aims to enhance the analysis of in-vivo images containing pathology indicators and provide a structured approach for identifying and presenting relevant information to reviewers efficiently.
