Stanford, iRhythm's deep neural network matches cardiologists at arrhythmia classification

Posted by iRhythm Technologies on January 7, 2019

MobiHealth News describes that according to a new study published in Nature Medicine, an algorithm trained via a deep neural network has been able to perform on par with board-certified cardiologists at the annotation of 12 different types of heart rhythms.

Researchers from Stanford University and iRhythm collaborated for the study, which detailed an algorithm trained on 91,232 30-second single-lead ECG readings from 53,877 patients, recorded via iRhythm’s Zio monitoring patch, the company’s signature product.
