The tremendous advances in digital information and communication technology have entered everything from our daily lives to the most intricate aspects of medical and surgical care. These advances are seen in electronic and mobile health and are allowing for many new applications to further improve and make more precise diagnosis of patient diseases and conditions. In the area of digital radiology with respect to diagnostic imaging, the use of advanced imaging tools and techniques is now at the center of diagnosis and treatment. Digital acquisition and analysis are central to diagnostic capabilities especially in the field of cardiovascular imaging. Further to this point, the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) into the world of digital cardiovascular imaging greatly broadening the capabilities of the field both with respect to advancement, but also with respect to complete and accurate diagnosis of cardiovascular conditions. The application of AI in recognition, diagnostics, protocol automation, and quality control for the analysis of cardiovascular imaging modalities such as echocardiography, nuclear cardiac imaging, cardiovascular computed tomography, cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, and other imaging is a major advance that is improving and advancing by the moment. Researchers plan to document the innovations in the field of cardiovascular imaging that have been brought about by the acceptance and implementation of AI in relation to healthcare professionals and patients in the cardiovascular field.
