Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Cardiovascular CT Online Event

6hrs of content | Live Q&A with experts | Learning where it is convenient for you

April 24 | 10am - 3:05pm EST


We are witnessing an era of accelerated development of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques designed to maximize data extraction from conventional cardiac imaging. These applications offer the potential for scientific advancement and improved patient care. 

This online event will bring together AI/ML developers, the clinical cardiac CT community and other relevant stakeholders to discuss the development, validation and clinical implementation of these technologies in cardiovascular medicine. 

Learn where cardiovascular imaging is going from the comfort of your office or home.

Program content

This meeting will focus on developments in AI and ML, that have the potential to impact on cardiovascular medicine and cardiovascular CT. Recognizing that within these boundaries the potential of these technologies is still broad, we will focus in this first meeting on the theme of coronary artery disease, allowing for an in-depth discussion on clinical applications of these technologies with a wide range of stakeholders from clinical, academic and commercial arenas. 

Themes for future meeting themes would include wider clinical applications of these technologies in the areas of structural. congenital, heart muscle and electrical heart disease.
