Speech Title: "Medical Image Analysis in Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing"

Abstract: Flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) is considered the gold standard in diagnosing oropharyngeal dysphagia. Recent advances in deep learning have led to a resurgence of artificial intelligence-assisted computer-aided diagnosis (AI-assisted CAD) for a variety of applications. AI-assisted CAD would be a remarkable benefit in providing medical services to populations with inadequate access to dysphagia experts, especially in aging societies. In this presentation, I will introduce an AI-assisted CAD named FEES-CAD for aspiration and penetration detection on video recording during FEES. FEES-CAD segments the input FEES video and classifies penetration, aspiration, residue in the vallecula, and residue in the hypopharynx based on the segmented FEES video. To the best of our knowledge, FEES-CAD is the first AI-based system that achieves expert-level performance in detecting aspiration and penetration. An prospective observatory study was also performed to confirm the usefulness of the proposed system in assisting medical staff in the diagnosis of penetration, aspiration, residue in the vallecula, and residue in the hypopharynx.

Assoc. Prof. Daniele Takahashi

Bahia Federal University, Brazil

Dr. Daniele Takahashi is an Agronomist Engineer, holding a PhD in Agronomy from the University of São Paulo and a Master's degree from the same institution. Her academic journey began with a degree in Agronomy from the Federal University of São Carlos. With a distinguished career, Dr. Daniele Takahashi has served as the Head of Department at Bahia Federal University from 2020 to 2022. Currently, she is an esteemed Associate Professor at the Federal University of Bahia, where her research delves into the intricate mechanisms of biomolecules. Dr. Daniele Takahashi contributions extend beyond the academic realm. She actively leads projects focused on the development of innovative technologies for teaching biochemistry. Additionally, her commitment to education is underscored by her role as the coordinator of the Pedagogical Support Group at the Health Sciences Institute.

 

Assoc. Prof. Ye Ai

Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore

Dr. Ye Ai is currently an Associate Professor with tenure at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Prior to joining SUTD as an Assistant Professor in 2013, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Bioscience Division of Los Alamos National Laboratory from 2011 to 2013. He was a visiting scholar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2014 to 2015. He has been selected as 2019 Lab on a Chip Emerging Investigator by the journal of Lab on a Chip and listed among the top 2% scientists in a global list by Stanford University from 2021 to 2023. Associate Professor Ye Ai’s research interest focuses on developing innovative microfluidic technologies and biomedical devices for solving challenging biological and medical problems. His research group has developed precise acoustic tweezing technology for single cell manipulation, biophysical cytometry for multidimensional label-free single cell analysis, and microfluidic molecular diagnostic devices. Multiple technologies and IPs from Dr. Ai’s research have been licensed for commercialization.
