Cardiol Clin. 2023 May;41(2):151-161. doi: 10.1016/j.ccl.2023.01.004. Epub 2023 Feb 20.


Artificial intelligence (AI) encompasses a variety of computer algorithms that have a wide range of potential clinical applications in nuclear cardiology. This article will introduce core terminology and concepts for AI including classifications of AI as well as training and testing regimens. We will then highlight the potential role for AI to improve image registration and image quality. Next, we will discuss methods for AI-driven image attenuation correction. Finally, we will review advancements in machine learning and deep-learning applications for disease diagnosis and risk stratification, including efforts to improve clinical translation of this valuable technology with explainable AI models.

Keywords: Artificial intelligence; Deep learning; Machine learning; Nuclear cardiology.
