NIH Slated for 7 percent Budget Cut
The President has proposed a $38.7 billion budget for the National Institutes of Health in fiscal year (FY) 2021. This translates to a $3 billion or 7 percent cut in the agency’s funding compared to FY 2020. The NIH budget request includes a $50 million initiative to use artificial intelligence (AI) to develop a better understanding of the causes of chronic diseases and to identify early treatments. This plan is in line with the Administration’s “Industries of the Future” effort, which supports using and developing AI across sectors. The budget would provide $50 million for the Childhood Cancer ...

Mayo researchers create, test AI to improve EKG testing for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
(Mayo Clinic) An approach based on artificial intelligence (AI) may allow EKGs to be used to screen for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the future. With hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the heart walls become thick and may interfere with the heart's ability to function properly. The disease also predisposes some patients to potentially fatal abnormal rhythms. Current EKG technology has limited diagnostic yield for this disease. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

How AI Can Predict Heart Attacks and Strokes
Artificial intelligence is making its way into health care, and one of its first stops is making sense of all of those scans that doctors order. Already, studies have shown that AI-based tools can, in some cases, pick out abnormal growths that could be cancerous tumors better than doctors can, mainly because digesting and synthesizing huge volumes of information is what AI does best. In a study published Feb. 14 in Circulation, researchers in the U.K. and the U.S. report that an AI program can reliably predict heart attacks and strokes. Kristopher Knott, a research fellow at the British Heart Foundation, and his team condu...

Sensing Changes in Remote and Surgical Devices
The role of sensors in medical devices is becoming increasingly more important, especially when it comes to developing new technologies such as wearable devices that can diagnose and transmit information for long periods of time. Recent developments in sensor technologies are driving the trend toward the decentralization of healthcare by putting diagnostic instruments in the hands (or on the bodies) of patients. The move toward miniaturization in medical devices has also enabled sensors to be placed on laparoscopic instruments, providing surgeons with valuable haptic feedback.
