AI could predict heart attack risk up to 10 years in the future, finds Oxford study

  • Artificial intelligence has the potential to predict a person's risk of having a heart attack up to 10 years in advance, leading to improved treatment for patients, according to a study by the University of Oxford. The study found that some patients who were sent home from the hospital after experiencing chest pain had a high risk of a heart attack in the next decade, even with no signs of disease in their arteries.
  • The AI tool developed in the study accurately predicted the risk of a heart attack in a group of 3,393 patients over an eight-year period. When AI-generated risk scores were presented to healthcare professionals, 45% of patients had their treatment plans altered as a result, indicating the potential for thousands of lives to be saved with widespread implementation.
  • The implementation of AI technology across the NHS has the potential to prevent thousands of avoidable deaths from heart attacks annually in the UK, according to Professor Antoniades, one of the lead researchers of the study conducted at the University of Oxford.
