Piet C. de Groen MD

Professor of Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Dr. de Groen is a Professor of Medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, at University of Minnesota, emeritus staff at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, and former Program Director of the Mayo Clinic/IBM Computational Biology Collaboration. He is an NIH-funded clinical investigator and international expert in medical informatics, primary liver cancers and colonoscopy.

His endoscopic research is focused on measuring what happens during colonoscopy. Together with collaborators at Iowa State University and the University of North Texas he has created a first-of-a-kind new software system that automatically captures and analyzes “inside-the-patient” video information of medical procedures performed via endoscopy. At present he is studying patient- and endoscopist-specific features, including quality of the colon preparation and effort of the endoscopist to visualize mucosa, remove remaining fecal material and adequately distend the colon.

Dr. de Groen has received royalties (<$1000/year) from EndoMetric Inc., a company that markets software to measure quality of colonoscopy.
