AI can gauge the risk of dying from heart conditions
Monday, September 16, 2019, 6:03 PM
Researchers at MIT have developed a machine learning system, 'RiskCardio', to better predict death caused by cardiovascular issues that block or reduce blood flow. The system uses the patient's first 15 minutes of raw electrocardiogram (ECG) signal and places them into different risk categories. It can predict whether a person will die within 30 days or up to a year.

Men diagnosed with the heart condition dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) are 64 percent more likely to die than women with the same disease (of those enrolled, 12.4 percent of women and 19.1 percent of men died during this study), according to new research funded by the British Heart Foundation. Now, the researchers hope to investigate whether female hormones could protect the heart from damage.
