A groundbreaking AI tool could predict heart attacks up to a decade in advance, potentially saving thousands of lives.
Developed by University of Oxford researchers, the AI analyses cardiac CT scans, identifying subtle risks invisible to traditional methods.
The tool accurately predicted over 3,000 heart attacks, highlighting its potential to revolutionise heart disease prevention.
Patients with no visible artery blockages were twice as likely to have heart attacks, emphasising the AI's ability to detect hidden dangers.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) hailed the study, calling it a "valuable role" for AI in saving lives from needless heart attacks.
The AI tool's potential rollout across the NHS could transform heart disease care, saving thousands of lives annually.
