Our department has been participating in the Evarest trial, which is being co-ordinated by Oxford University. Participating in the trial for patients involves giving consent for the images taken during their clinical stress echo test to be anonymised and sent to the coordinating centre along with some information. 

 

The aim of the trial is to help develop Artificial Intelligence analysis to analyse data.  This is very much a growing field in research at the moment and should lead to more accurate analysis of heart images in the future.
