  • How Migraines Happen: Latest Research Reveals New Details

    Despite the fact that one in every seven people worldwide experiences migraines, their exact mechanisms and treatment have not been completely explained. In pursuit of a cure, researchers use nitroglycerin injections to simulate migraines in animals. Though commonly known as a vasodilator, the drug has exhibited inverse properties in a recent study conducted by three Russian universities. The findings shed light on migraine triggers, paving the way for novel treatment strategies.


  • ITMO Experts Produce Algorithm to Improve Heart Attack Diagnostics

    The staff and students of ITMO’s Research Center “Strong AI in Industry” have come up with an algorithm that can tell if an ECG recording displays symptoms of a heart attack – all in one second. Trained on over 20,000 ECGs, the model is accurate in 85% of cases and can immediately highlight those parts of the recording that can be associated with a heart attack.


  • Improved Algorithm for Lung Cancer Diagnostics Suggested by ITMO Students

    Students from ITMO University have developed a machine learning-based algorithm for detecting lung tumors on computed tomography (CT) scans. Trained on over 10,000 public-domain images, the model proved to generate results in 0.38 seconds. As noted by the developers, the technology may assist in online medical consultations to facilitate diagnostics.
