An artificial intelligence (AI) platform accurately identifies acute neurologic events, such as stroke, from CT scans in as little as 1.2 seconds, new research suggests. If the findings are confirmed, this technology would radically speed the triage process by immediately alerting physicians to critical findings that may otherwise have remained in a queue from minutes to hours. "This was our original study that launched our medical AI research consortium in the Mount Sinai Health System,” said senior investigator, Eric Oermann, MD, instructor of the department of neurosurgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “I was motivated by my specific experiences with taking care of patients with acute neurologic illnesses where any possible way of reducing the time it took for me to reach them could have potentially improved their outcomes,” said Dr. Oermann. The study was published in Nature Medicine.
