The prospect of artificial intelligence in the differential diagnosis of pancreatic cysts

Marco Montorsi, Giovanni Capretti


The title of the work we are here presenting “Diagnostic ability of artificial intelligence using deep learning analysis of cyst fluid in differentiating malignant from benign pancreatic cystic lesions” immediately strikes the interest of readers, especially of the ones performing pancreatic surgery (1). This article debates a theme of major concern for surgeons, the correct identification of a pancreatic cystic lesion, and a theme of major concern for the medical society and the society in general, the application of artificial intelligence (AI).
