An artificial intelligence algorithm has been developed by Massachusetts General Hospital to rapidly diagnose and classify brain hemorrhages from unenhanced head computed-tomography scans.

The deep learning system not only detects acute intracranial hemorrhage—and classifies five subtypes of the condition—but generates predictions from the data that are explainable, according to researchers, who contend that the tool could potentially help hospital emergency departments to evaluate patients experiencing acute stroke symptoms.
