Bottom Line: Mean UCEIS scores did not differ between blinded and unblinded readers for any of the 40 main videos.The SD of CRGs was lower than for individual central readers [0.54 vs 0.95; p < 0.001].Correlation between blinded UCEIS and patient-reported symptoms was high [stool frequency: 0.76; rectal bleeding: 0.82; both: 0.81].

Figure 2: Mean blinded and unblinded UCEIS [A] and VAS [B] scores for the main evaluation set of 40 videos.

Mentions: Mean assessments of overall endoscopic severity by VAS [0–100] ranged from 1.65 for videos in the ‘normal’ stratum to 92.75 for videos in the ‘most severe ever seen’ stratum according to the 40 readers. Using the same videos, this corresponded to mean UCEIS scores of 0.15/8 for ‘normal’ subjects to 7.90/8 for ‘most severe’, indicating that the videos comprehensively covered the range of endoscopic severity of UC [Figure 2].
