Artificial intelligence system can diagnose heart disease, cancer early

A new artificial intelligence system has been developed, that can detect heart ailments and cancer more accurately.
Researchers have developed new artificial intelligence (AI) systems which can help diagnose heart disease and lung cancer much more accurately and early. Currently cardiologists can tell from the timing of the heartbeat in scans if there is a problem. However, even the best doctors get it wrong in one in five cases.
Patients are either sent home and have a heart attack or they undergo an unnecessary operation. A new AI system diagnoses heart scans much more accurately. It can pick up details in the scans that doctors cannot see. The system then provides a recommendation – positive – which means that it believes that there is a risk of the patient having a heart attack.
Doctors can not tell whether these clumps are harmless or will go on to become cancerous and so patients go on to have several more scans to see how the nodules develop. However, clinical trials have shown that this AI system can rule out the harmless cases and also diagnose lung cancer much earlier, researchers said.
