Eye Scans Open a Window into Heart Health

Scientists at the University of Leeds have developed an AI system that can identify patients at risk of a heart attack from eye scans taken during a routine visit to an optician. The AI system identified associations between pathology in the retina and changes in the patient’s heart. At present, diagnostic features of the heart can only be monitored in a hospital setting through relatively expensive tests. The use of deep learning approaches to analyze retinal scans could revolutionize healthcare through early detection of signs of heart disease.
