Multimodality artificial intelligence for cardiac diagnosis and prevention


Project Description

The Tison lab leverages multi-modal medical data streams--such as data from cardiac ultrasound (echocardiograms), ECGs, electronic health record, photoplethysmography and other remote sensors--to perform cardiac phenotyping, diagnosis and disease prevention. This project aims to build a platform for machine learning-based interpretation of multiple data sources including at least echocardiogram, ECG and electronic health record-derived data. This will be performed first for discrete demonstration diseases including heart failure, pulmonary hypertension and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, while adhering to the larger vision that the platform be broadly applicable across various cardiac phenotypes.
