Erik A. Holzwanger et al. Benchmarking definitions of false-positive alerts during computer-aided polyp detection in colonoscopy

In this computer-aided colon polyp detection (CADe) study, different time thresholds were applied to define incorrect alerts as false-positive. The authors found that this notably affected the calculated values for diagnostic performance, and suggest a false-positive alert threshold of ≥2 seconds as a starting point for consensus definition.
