    Ai, Oct Operate in Tandem to Detect Plaque Erosion in the Heart

    Researchers from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China have developed an AI method that can automatically detect plaque erosion in the heart’s arteries using optical coherence tomography (OCT). “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. “Our new method could help improve the clinical diagnosis of plaque erosion and be used to develop new treatments for patients with heart disease.”
