AI-Driven Cardiac Ultrasound Company Bay Labs Announces Two Presentations At TCT2017
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – October 25, 2017 – Bay Labs, a medical technology company at the forefront of applying artificial intelligence to cardiovascular imaging, today announced that Emeritus Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) at Emory University School of Medicine and the company’s Chief Medical Officer Randolph P. Martin, M.D. FACC, FASE, has been invited to be a faculty member and present at the upcoming 29th Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) meeting in Denver. Dr. Martin’s two presentations will focus on how advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning can impact the role that cardiovascular imaging and echocardiography play in the diagnosis and management of heart diseases, especially those affecting the heart valves.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about artificial intelligence and deep learning’s role in echocardiography and valvular heart diseases at the following presentations being made by Dr. Martin:
● Using Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning) to Direct Acquisition and Interpretation of Echocardiograms – Improving Access and Quality of Valve Disease Diagnosis: Monday, October 30, 4:04 PM, Colorado Convention Center, Mile High Ballroom 2B-3B.
● Advances in Structural Heart Disease Imaging (Workflow Advances, Automated Quantification, and Machine Learning): Wednesday, November 1, 1:15 PM, Colorado Convention Center, Room 605.
Today, physicians seek consistent, high-quality imaging studies with quantitative assessments from imaging labs to the point of care. Such studies aid in the timely and appropriate diagnosis and treatment of heart disease around the world. Deep learning, a type of artificial intelligence algorithm, has great promise to aid in the acquisition and interpretation of echocardiographic exams (ultrasound images of the heart) and may improve the treatment of heart diseases.
