In the United Kingdom, artificial intelligence reduces the after-effects of a stroke

The use of artificial intelligence has increased the rate of patients without mild disabilities from 16% to 48%.

In the UK, the number of patients who show little or no sequelae after a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) has been multiplied by three thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), the British Ministry of Health announced on Tuesday.

Its use, in 111,000 cases of suspected stroke, increased from 16% to 48% the rate of patients who subsequently presented no sequelae or slight handicap.

AI provides decision-making support in interpreting brain scanners, to enable the patient to have the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time, the ministry points out.

More than 85,000 people in England suffer a stroke each year.

The Department of Health cites the example of Carol Wilson, assistant teacher and grandmother, who in June 2021 suffered severe cramps and rapidly lost her sight and the use of her limbs. The software helped quickly diagnose a blood clot in the brain and opt for a thrombectomy.
