Recent studies have confirmed that artificial neural networks (ANNs) are adept at recognising patterns in sets of clinical data. The diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in patients presenting with chest pain remains one of the greatest challenges in emergency medicine. The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of an ANN trained to analyse clinical data from chest pain patients. The ANN was compared with serum myoglobin measurements--cardiac damage is associated with… CONTINUE READING
