Algorithm Steers Catheters to Right Spot to Treat Atrial Fibrillation

Using human AFib simulations, the researchers demonstrated that their technique can stop the catheter at the right target and identify the source type with a 95.25 percent success rate. This new algorithm also is effective in scarred tissue, which makes ablation more challenging, and has a 99 percent detection rate regardless of the scar size.

Brain images that have been pre-reviewed by the Viz.AI artificial intelligence software to identify a stroke. The software automatically sends and alert to the attending physician's smartphone with links to the imaging for a final human assessment to help speed the time to diagnosis and treatment. Depending on the type of stroke, quick action is needed to either activate the neuro-interventional lab or to administer tPA.

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.
