Controlling the catheter with AI

Dear Sir or Madam,

In the case of cardiovascular diseases, rapid treatment is essential. In order to accelerate the process, an AI-based control system can be used, which directs the catheter to the affected vessel. A software model that simulates the navigation of a catheter in the vascular tree will be used to improve treatment. Discover more in our current interview.

Have a healthy week,

Melanie Prüser

Cardiovascular diseases: using AI to navigate the catheter

Treatment of a heart attack or stroke caused by vascular occlusion must be prompt to prevent further damage to vital tissue. Unfortunately, the actual treatment is often preceded by a lengthy catheter-based procedure where the cardiologist manually guides the catheter to the affected vessel. AI might perform this task in the future.
