Using AI to determine heart failure diagnosis
Aug. 17, 2020

When people seek emergency care for shortness of breath, it can be challenging to determine the cause. A new Mayo Clinic study found that using an EKG enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI) is better than standard blood tests at determining if the shortness of breath is caused by heart failure.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Demilade Adedinsewo, lead author of the study and chief fellow in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Florida, discusses how AI is improving patient care in the emergency department.
