AI Reduces Echo Report Time

AI echo reduces report time by 70%

By Us2.ai / 13 February, 2024 / Comments Off on AI echo reduces report time by 70%

Manual interpretation of echocardiographic data is time-consuming and operator-dependent. With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI), there is a growing interest in its potential to streamline echocardiographic interpretation and reduce variability. This study published in The Journal of Echocardiography aimed to compare the time taken for measurements by AI to that by human experts. “Our…

AI to Diagnose RHD

AI for Rheumatic Heart Disease

By Us2.ai / 17 January, 2024 / Comments Off on AI for Rheumatic Heart Disease

Each year, RHD kills nearly 400,000 people globally. Experts at Children’s National Hospital deployed algorithms on the Us2.ai 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…

AI Echo mobile screening for early signs of heart failure

By Us2.ai / 15 July, 2023 / Comments Off on AI Echo mobile screening for early signs of heart failure

Diagnosis of sub-clinical heart failure with preserved ejection fraction is challenging and echo services are traditionally limited to tertiary echo centres.  Early signs of heart failure often go undiagnosed until patients are hospitalized for heart failure syndrome. We want to extend echo diagnostics into the community, especially for the primary care diabetes population, so that…

AI Echo For Aortic Stenosis Severity Assessment

AI Echo for Aortic Stenosis Severity

By Us2.ai / 26 June, 2023 / Comments Off on AI Echo for Aortic Stenosis Severity

Aortic stenosis (AoS) is a common form of valvular heart disease present in 12% of the population aged above 75. If left untreated, 1/4 of those with severe symptomatic AoS will die from this condition within 2 years. Echo is the primary imaging modality used to diagnose AoS, but the necessary imaging is time consuming…
