Researchers have created a deep learning method that can predict which patients might be eligible for life-saving medication that can prevent both diseases.

A new artificial intelligence model has been created that uses deep learning to predict the 10-year risk of death from a heart attack or stroke from a single X-ray. The results from the study were presented on Nov. 29 at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting.

Deep learning uses artificial intelligence to ‘learn’ and view X-ray images to find patterns associated with various diseases, in this case, a stroke or heart attack.
