An example of artificial intelligence on the GE Healthcare Vivid E95 system shown at ASE 2019 where the AI automatically pulls in an exam, identifies the left ventricle and myocardial boards and then calculates all the strain measurements in less than 10 seconds. While AI automation can greatly speed workflow, there are questions about the accuracy of AI for the next step in making diagnoses.  #ASE #ASE21 #ASE2021 #AI

Images or a digital twin mitral valve of a patient created from cardiac ultrasound that were used to perform a virtual surgical procedure to test how the intervention would impact the patient prior to actually performing the procedure. The right image shows color coding for sheer stresses on the valve leaflets before and after the virtual surgery. The right image shows the model quantitation of leaflet coaptation at peak systole prior to the the virtual surgery. Read the original article in Plos One https:/
