AI tool can better predict sudden heart deaths, study finds

A new artificial intelligence technology was found to predict sudden deaths from heart disease more accurately than standard tools, a recent multistate study led by Johns Hopkins researchers found.

The approach, a "deep learning" technology that incorporates neural networks and survival analysis and looks at raw cardiac images, outperformed standard statistical-based survival models in patients with ischemic heart disease, according to the April 7 study in Nature Cardiovascular Research.

"This technology has the potential to transform clinical decision-making by offering accurate and generalizable predictions of patient-specific survival probabilities of arrhythmic death over time," the authors wrote.
