Are A.I. Eye Checks the New Heart Disease Warning Test?
Predicting Heart Disease with A.I.
This is AI Supremacy Premium,
As I continue to cover AI in Healthcare at a breathtaking pace, I continue to be highly impressed with early diagnosis techniques enabled by artificial intelligence.
Let’s keep in mind that even with a pandemic, heart disease is the leading cause of death globally with an estimated 17.9 million people dying from it each year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
The rapid accuracy of the test could be very useful:
Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) tool that can spot early warning signs of a heart problem in less than a minute.
Breakthrough opens door to a highly effective, non-invasive test that does not need to be done in a clinic.
Researchers found AI-enabled imaging of the retina’s veins and arteries can specify the risk of cardiovascular disease, cardiovascular death and stroke.
It works by scanning and measuring the thickness of tiny arteries and veins at the back of the eye, which are thought to hold key information about heart health.
