AI-enabled tool developed to detect heart attacks

Researchers have developed an Artificial Intelligence-enabled tool which uses Machine Learning (ML) algorithms that will soon play a critical role in predicting heart attacks and other cardiac issues.

The Coronary Computed Tomography Arteriography (CCTA) gives highly detailed images of the heart vessels and is a promising tool for refining risk assessment, said researchers in the study published in the journal Radiology.

While earlier tools like the Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System (CAD-RADS) emphasise on stenoses or blockages and narrowing in the coronary arteries, CCTA shows more than just stenoses.

“While CAD-RADS is an important and useful development in the management of cardiac patients, its focus on stenoses may leave out important information about the arteries,” said study lead author Kevin M. Johnson, Associate Professor at the Yale University.
