Using Artificial Intelligence for Stroke in the Emergency Setting

By Andra Morrison, Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH)

Artificial intelligence (AI) can help us in our everyday lives – from improving our email communications, to searching the web, even recommending products or music we might enjoy. In health care, AI is improving the way we detect illnesses or certain health conditions. But what about the use of AI in medical imaging?

In Issue 22 (October 2018), CADTH Program Development Officer Andra Morrison explores the use of artificial intelligence for stroke in the emergency setting. The article takes a closer look at e-ASPECTS (Brainomix Limited), an artificial intelligence enhanced decision support tool, which can be used for patients with suspected stroke to measure the extent of ischemic damage.
