Each individual admitted to the ICU also had high levels of troponin, a protein released into the blood when the heart muscle sustains an injury, according to a new cardiac MRI-based study.

Exams performed by nurses and trained sonographers were similar in more than 90% of cases, researchers explained in JAMA Cardiology.

The deep learning method was trained on more than 800,000 echocardiogram videos gathered over the past decade.

Specifically, doctors should consider adding routine global longitudinal strain to their surveillance of patients undergoing chemotherapy, experts argued recently.
