AI-driven vision for heart health comes into focus

The University of Alberta (U of A), in partnership with the University Hospital Foundation (UHF), is embarking on a groundbreaking project to transform cardiac imaging with the power of artificial intelligence (AI).

Cardiac imaging is the cornerstone of diagnosing, treating and observing the progress of heart disease, says Justin Ezekowitz, director of Cardiovascular Research at the U of A. He believes it holds untapped potential for patients. “We need to take a deeper dive into the images. There’s information buried in there that we haven’t really appreciated or utilized.”
