The Impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Cardiovascular Care

Healthcare Tech Outlook | Monday, March 11, 2019

The utilization of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is augmenting and extending the effectiveness in cardiovascular care. Computer-aided diagnosis, clinical decision support, quantitative analysis tools, computer-aided detection are four main areas of cardiovascular care where Artificial intelligence is implemented with automated quantitative tools. The AI-driven quantitative analytical tools are also being used in data analytics software for departmental and hospital business management.

Artificial intelligence makes measurements from imaging exams and auto-filling fields or performs calculations that were previously manual and time-consuming. The Artificial intelligence image diagnostic software is developed and commercialized for critical findings like strokes where timing is very much crucial. Artificial intelligence in cardiovascular care is also developed to help auto triage patients who need additional or more immediate attention. Artificial intelligence also helps in predicting cardiovascular disease risk from CT scans. It also automates ejection fraction analysis on handheld ultrasound. With AI drove tech the cardiac MRI acquisition software speeds up and is effectively used. 

According to an industrial source, the Canon Aquilion Precision CT system gained FDA clearance in 2018 offering a resolution of 0.25 mm enabling visualization of fine details which are not seen on most of the current-generation CT systems. Another software Viz.AI identifies ischemic strokes from CT scans. It sends an automated alert to the neuro expert on call for an immediate review of the images on their smartphones and also performs auto quantification. Artificial intelligence also records and validates empirical data to further analyze symptomatology, biomarkers, and treatment effectiveness in cardiological care.

Futuristic directions in cardiovascular care intents the use of Artificial intelligence wearables developing a mechanism by which doctors and patients can easily access and monitor cardiac activity remotely. The impact of artificial intelligence in cardiovascular care has brought high-reaching medical researchers, engineers, scientists who evaluate the use of Artificial intelligence in the genome and environmental analysis particularly for heart disease patients.
