AI Echo For Heart Failure Detection

AI automated heart failure detection and classification from electronic health records

By Us2.ai / 8 May, 2024 / Comments Off on AI automated heart failure detection and classification from electronic health records

New research led by the University of Dundee, demonstrated the feasibility of AI to automatically identify and classify patients with heart failure  from archived echocardiographic images with  Us2.ai software. Heart failure (HF) is a highly prevalent yet under-diagnosed condition with high mortality and morbidity. Echocardiography is a foundational investigation to diagnose HF and differentiate the types of HF i.e. HF with reduced (HFrEF), mildly reduced (HFmrEF)…

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…
