AI to Diagnose RHD

AI for Rheumatic Heart Disease

Each year, RHD kills nearly 400,000 people globally. Experts at Children’s National Hospital deployed algorithms on the platform to detect early-stage RHD with the same accuracy as a cardiologist.

“AI will tell you to move (the probe) left or right to get the ideal picture… Even more importantly, we’ve developed technology that can tell you whether or not a patient has rheumatic heart disease. Within a couple of minutes, the artificial intelligence technology can analyze the image and say it’s screened positive or it’s screened negative.” – Dr. Craig Sable, Pediatric Cardiologist, Children’s National Hospital
