Using artificial intelligence to treat heart diseases better

Gesundheit, Künstliche Intelligenz, Pressemitteilung der TUM, VERANSTALTUNGEN |

The objective of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) lighthouse project "Digitaler Herz-OP" ("Digital Heart Surgery") is to enable more precise and lower-impact treatment of heart disease. Physicians and engineers at the German Heart Centre Munich (DHM) and the Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) are working together closely in a leading-edge partnership to jointly develop new high-precision instruments for the operating room, the cardiac catheter lab and the intensive care unit. Oriented towards clinical challenges, innovative sensor data fusion, AI-augmented analyses and modern information technologies are used to create new digital treatment methods.
