HeartFlow Stock: Using AI to Combat Heart Disease

The older you get, the more you start to understand why old people spend so much time talking about their health problems. It usually starts in your mid-40s when you realize you’re at the age where you should get regular health screens. You go in for bloodwork, and the doctor says you have high cholesterol.

Cardiovascular disease is no joke. It’s the number one cause of death accounting for one out of three deaths, more than twice as many deaths as the second most common cause (cancer). About one in every six healthcare dollars is spent on heart disease, and it’s almost certain that you or someone you know will be affected by it.
