Artificial Intelligence: Will You Suffer A Heart Attack? AI Can Tell…A Decade Before

November 28, 2023 | Artificial Intelligence, News

Persons at risk can now take proactive steps much in advance to prevent a heart attack.

The University of Oxford has achieved a groundbreaking milestone in heart health through the world’s first trial of an artificial intelligence (AI) tool capable of predicting the risk of a fatal heart attack a decade in advance. Unveiled at the American Heart Association’s scientific session, the results indicate a significant advancement in cardiac care, offering the potential to identify individuals at risk much earlier.

The AI tool analyzes changes in fat around inflamed arteries, detects narrowings, and considers clinical risk factors to independently predict the likelihood of a cardiac event. Implementing this technology in the UK alone is projected to result in a remarkable 20% reduction in heart attacks and an 8% decrease in cardiac deaths and strokes. (BoldSky)

This revolutionary tool holds promise for transforming routine screenings into preventive measures, foreseeing potential threats a decade ahead. The lives impacted by this advancement extend beyond statistics, encompassing friends, family, and neighbors who may now avoid unforeseen cardiac events.

For individuals with clear cardiac CT scans, the AI tool addresses the current scenario where many are discharged but subsequently experience heart attacks due to undetectable narrowings.

The impact of this AI tool extends globally, with implications for millions, particularly in India, where heart attacks are alarmingly prevalent. With over three million heart attacks occurring annually in India, the tool’s potential to reshape cardiovascular care represents a transformative leap, offering hope for improved diagnostic tools and preventive measures.
