Is Artificial Intelligence Better than Manual Methods in Diagnosis of Electrocardiograms (ECGS) or not?
Cardiac diseases have become the major killer diseases. Previously ECGs were used to be diagnosed manually by
skilled physicians. Now artificial intellegence is used extensively to diagnose ECGs. Artificial intellegence is the point
where the doctors and engineers meet to decrease the misdiagnosis of cardiac diseases. So we thought it worthwhile to
compare and contrast the ECG diagnosis by artificial intellegence and skilled physicians. AIM: This paper exposes the
potential of diagnosis of each ECG by artificial intelligence and skilled physicians. METHOD: The research was done on 30
ECGs and their diagnosis was compared by both the methods. OBSERVATION: The result was divided into 3 categories:
absolutely misdiagnosed, relatively misdiagnosed and correctly diagnosed. RESULT: Out of these 33% ECGs are absolutely
misdiagnosed, 44% ECGs are relatively misdiagnosed and 23% ECGs are correctly diagnosed. CONCLUSION: Our study
concludes that artificial intelligence needs human intervention as well. A combination of human brain and artificial
intelligence has made wonders, thus diagnosis and treatment planning can be enhanced.
