    AI-Based Image Analysis Automatically Detects Serious Heart Condition

    Researchers have developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) method that can automatically detect plaque erosion in the heart’s arteries using optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. Monitoring plaque in the arteries is important because when plaque breaks apart it can block blood flow to the heart, leading to a heart attack or other serious conditions. “If cholesterol plaque lining arteries starts to erode it can lead to a sudden reduction in blood flow to the heart known as acute coronary syndrome, which requires urgent treatment,” said research team leader Zhao Wang from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of ...
