Abstract
Cardiac CT using non-enhanced coronary artery calcium scoring (CACS) and coronary CT angiography (cCTA) has been proven to provide excellent evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD) combining anatomical and morphological assessment of CAD for cardiovascular risk stratification and therapeutic decision-making, in addition to providing prognostic value for the occurrence of adverse cardiac outcome. In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) and, in particular, the application of machine learning (ML) algorithms, have been promoted in cardiovascular CT imaging for improved decision pathways, risk stratification, and outcome prediction in a more objective, reproducible, and rational manner. AI is based on computer science and mathematics that are based on big data, high performance computational infrastructure, and applied algorithms. The application of ML in daily routine clinical practice may hold potential to improve imaging workflow and to promote better outcome prediction and more effective decision-making in patient management. Moreover, CT represents a field wherein ML may be particularly useful, such as CACS and cCTA. Thus, the purpose of this review is to give a short overview about the contemporary state of ML based algorithms in cardiac CT, as well as to provide clinicians with currently available scientific data on clinical validation and implementation of these algorithms for the prediction of ischemia-specific CAD and cardiovascular outcome.
