New Delhi: Since COVID-19, medical device companies have had to rapidly adopt emerging technologies such as: artificial intelligence (AI) to fight the pandemic. AI is having a particularly disruptive impact on the medical device space for heart disease.From the list of approved AI-enabled medical devices FDA Nearly 57 percent of these devices are projected to be in cardiology by 2022 global data.
global dataThis trend is expected to continue, creating multiple opportunities for the medical device industry, according to a study by . The study also revealed that spending on AI by medical device companies is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20.6% from 2019 to 2024.
Commenting on the involvement of AI in cardiology, Joselia CarlosGlobalData medical device analyst said: One developing area where researchers are interested in introducing AI is using it to predict heart attacks in patients before they occur. ”
according to world health organization, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, with approximately 17.9 million people dying from cardiovascular disease each year. In this regard, doctors can use his AI to analyze large amounts of patient data to determine who is at risk of a heart attack and when a heart attack might occur.
Carlos added, “One way doctors can use AI to predict heart attacks is by analyzing medical images and training AI algorithms to identify patterns and signs of heart disease. One example is an AI-enabled tool from Cedars-Sinai that analyzes coronary CT angiography 3D images of the heart and arteries to study plaque buildup within arteries: Using AI to Study Plaque Buildup Patterns This will allow doctors to better assess the likelihood of experiencing a heart attack in the future.”
“AI’s ability to replace high-profile professions, especially healthcare workers such as doctors, has always been a controversial topic. Instead, physicians can focus more on building relationships and treating patients using AI as a mere teaching tool,” concluded Carlos.
