Heart patients are continuously increasing around the world, the risk also increased
1.79 million people die every year worldwide
Efforts continue to reduce heart attack risk
Washington. There is good news for the growing number of heart patients around the world. Now scientists have developed such a model, which will predict the next ten years regarding heart disease. It will predict whether a person will die from a heart attack or stroke in the next ten years or not. Surprisingly, this estimate can be known from a single chest X-ray. There will be no need to redo x-rays again and again.
According to bgr.com, this technique is called CXR-CVD Risk. It was discovered at the National Cancer Institute of America. It was also discovered in a special test and training on it was also conducted. The institute studied 11,430 patients for this technique. All these patients had a chest X-ray. With this X-ray, he became eligible for statin therapy. This therapy reduces the risk of heart disease in patients.
Focus on patterns of heart disease
The results of this study were presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). It was said at the meeting that the result of the institute shows that it is an artificial intelligence (AI). It can be trained to see X-ray film in depth. Thus, the pattern of heart diseases can be known.
Identification of cardiac patients
Dr. Jacob Weiss, lead author of this study and associate at the Cardiovascular Imagine Research Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, said that our model is able to give a suitable solution by looking at the X-ray film. This screening will identify people who have not received any treatment for heart disease and who would benefit from statin therapy.
These settings will be checked
According to the guidelines that have been issued in this regard, an estimate can be made on serious heart patients for ten years. It can also be estimated whether or not he needs statin therapy. In this technique, a person’s age, gender, blood pressure, hypertension, smoking, type 2 diabetes, and blood tests are taken. Statin therapy is only given to people at risk of heart disease within the next ten years.
