British Heart Foundation with Parveen Hassan  
I recently met with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) policy team to learn more about their research on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to save lives in the West Midlands. 

The charity is funding innovative research to find better ways to diagnose and treat heart failure. The BHF  also highlighted the impact and benefits on heart and circulatory conditions. 

One of the funded research projects is being led by Dr Declan O’Regan and his team at Imperial College London. They are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to interpret heart scans and tests. The team have developed a machine learning algorithm ‘trained’ to find links between 3D heart scans and the patient’s prognosis using existing patient data. 

During the Conservative party conference, the team shared crucial information on the research led by Professor O’Regan’s team which can help inform doctors’ decisions about how to best treat people living with heart failure.

AI could transform the way scans and other tests are used to make the best decisions about treatment. The BHF policy team highlighted what can be done to further raise awareness of the importance of this research which instills public confidence, trust and transparency for patients and their data.
