AI helps predict heart attacks and stroke

Using AI technology to analyze CMR scans, researchers were able to precisely quantify the blood flow to the heart muscles of patients. Comparing the AI-generated blood flow results with health outcomes, the team found those with reduced blood flow were at increased risk of stroke, heart attacks, and heart failure. The machine-learning algorithm was able to predict which patients may die or suffer major adverse health events better than doctors could.... Read More...

Dog ownership associated with longer life, especially among heart attack and stroke survivors

Owning a dog was associated with a 33% lower risk of death for heart attack survivors who lived alone, and a 27% reduced risk for those who suffered a stroke, compared to those who did not own a pet. Additionally, dog ownership was linked to a 24% reduced risk of all-cause mortality and a 31% reduced risk of death by heart attack or stroke.... Read More...

Transgender men and women may have higher heart attack risk

Transgender men have a four times higher risk of heart attack than cisgender women, and twice the rate of heart attack than cisgender males. For transgender women, the risk of heart attack is twice the risk as in cisgender women. However, there is no significant difference in risk between transgender women and cisgender males....
