Is dual-screening using AI the future of health?- Future Health – Issue 40: CogX – Health & Epidemiology Briefing

Future of Health

Clinicians at Massachusetts General Hospital and engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a deep learning algorithm capable of screening for cardiovascular disease risk and cancer from the same scan.

Applied to low-dose CAT, it is claimed the AI can help accelerate treatment and improve patient outcomes, while eliminating the need for additional scanning and subsequently, more radiation exposure. Put simply, the algorithm has been effective at analyzing the risk for cardiovascular disease and related mortality in high-risk patients undergoing low-dose CAT scan. Perhaps there are more innovations waiting to be unlocked with dual-screening and AI?

Best,

Charlie
