AI and X ray: Unveiling Heart Attacks and Strokes

AI and a single X-ray could predict the risk of a stroke or heart attack

Researchers have developed a method of deep learning that predicts which patients may be eligible for medication that could prevent both diseases and save their lives.

Deep learning has been used to create a new artificial intelligence model that predicts the 10-year mortality risk from a stroke or heart attack based on a single Xray. The study’s results were presented at the Radiological Society of North America annual meeting on November 29.

AI can predict heart attacks and strokes

Deep learning is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to ‘learn and view X ray images in order to find patterns that are associated with different diseases. In this case, a heart attack or stroke.
