CV podcast: Artificial intelligence in automated ECG analysis

Computerized ECG interpretation software was developed to support clinical decision-making and workflow. While not perfect, it plays an important role in clinical practice by helping clinicians make timely medical decisions that can save lives.

In this episode of the “Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular CME” podcast, Peter Macfarlane, Ph.D., D.Sc., a University of Glasgow emeritus professor and honorary senior research fellow, joins host Anthony Kashou, M.D., to discuss the role of computer interpretation today and what it might look like in the future.

Specific topics of discussion include:

  • The role of computerized ECG in clinical practice today, and how that role has evolved over the years.
  • Dr. Macfarlane’s personal thoughts on applying artificial intelligence to the electrocardiogram and whether he believes this technology will eventually become commonplace and adopted into medical practice.
