New York, Researchers have developed an Artificial Intelligence AI )-powered tool that can harvest information in chest X-rays to predict long-term mortality. Lu and his colleagues developed a convolutional neural network – an AI tool for analysing visual information – called CXR-risk. The goal was for CXR-risk to learn the features or combinations of features on a chest X-ray image that best predict health and mortality. Next, Lu and colleagues tested CXR-risk using chest X-rays for 16,000 patients from two earlier clinical trials. “The study found that CXR-risk provided information that predicts long-term mortality, independent of radiologists’ readings of the x-rays and other factors, such as age and smoking status.
