AI as decision support when choosing recipients of transplanted hearts

Recording from AI Lund lunch seminar 16 March 2022

Title: AI aided decision support when choosing recipients of transplanted hearts

Speaker: Johan Nilsson, Artificial Intelligence and Bioinformatics in Cardiothoracic Sciences (AIBCTS), Department of Translational Medicine at Lund University

When: 16 March at 12.00-13.15

Where: Online

Spoken language: English


For a few years now, research has done on how AI-supported analysis of the very complex information in heart transplant registers, in theory, can improve the life expectancy of the group of recipients. A study is now being prepared to compare whether the theory also works in reality.

During the seminar, we will get an idea of the medical background, how transplant registers are used and how the AI support is intended to work. We also get to know how the journey from research results to practical application is intended to be carried out.
