Basic artificial intelligence is already incorporated into several premium echocardiography systems. This example is from the Philips Epiq, which can take 3-D datasets and the AI automatically identifies and segments the cardiac anatomy. It then extracts the best images for each of the standard views for an echocardiogram to eliminate variation between operators. The next generation echo AI software will pull in data from the electronic medical records and imaging data to offer suggested diagnoses.
