Artificial intelligence detects heart disease


Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota may have found the key to detecting heart problems before they ever show symptoms and it’s all thanks to artificial intelligence.

 About 7 million Americans have weak heart pumps they’re not even aware of, which can lead to heart failure.

 Mayo Clinic researchers set out to find a solution.

 Enter the electrocadriogram, known as an ECG or EKG. You’ve probably seen it before. It records your heart’s electrical signals.

 Mayo Clinic research now shows that applying artificial intelligence to EKG tests can pick up on weak heart pumps that doctors might not be able to detect with the human eye.

 Patients could then receive medications and treatments to prevent heart failure down the road.

 It’s something Arend hopes future patients will have access to.
