Artificial Intelligence Predicts When Heart Will Fail
High blood pressure in the lungs damages part of the heart, and about a third of patients die with five years of being diagnosed.
But doctors need to have an idea of how long patients might have left, in order to pick the right treatment.
The software was given MRI scans of 256 patients' hearts, and blood test results.
It correctly predicted those who would still be alive after one year about 80% of the time. The figure for doctors is 60%.
Dr Declan O'Regan, one of the researchers, told the BBC News website: "The AI really allows you to tailor the individual treatment.
The researchers also want to use the technology in other forms of heart failure, such as cardiomyopathy, to see who might need a pacemaker or other forms of treatment.
