Show Notes

In this episode, Dr. Ameer Hassan joins Dr. Sabeen Dhand to discuss the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve stroke care. We explain the hub and spoke model and how the primary stroke centers communicate in the hub. Dr. Hassan describes how the system determines which center a stroke patient will go to.

We discuss how the system optimizes the transfer from spoke to hub and how comparing trends in stroke patients allowed them to speed up the process. We explain how AI is used in stroke care using decision trees and deep learning. We discuss the benefits of using AI to remove steps and sending push notifications to phones, allowing radiologists to review imaging quicker.
