AI may help diagnose cardiac amyloidosis on whole-body scintigraphy
A group in France trained a deep-learning model that automatically detects cardiac radiotracer uptake on technetium-99m (Tc-99m) whole-body scintigraphy from a large hospital dataset. The model performed well and could be used perhaps to help identify thousands of undiagnosed patients every year, wrote lead author Dr. Marc-Antoine Delbarre, of Amiens University Hospital, and colleagues.
“The use of our automatic cardiac fixation detection model in nuclear medicine centers will probably help to find undiagnosed cardiac amyloidosis in the hundreds of thousands of patients who have…
