The AI4CMR software performs a automatic cardiac segmentation and interpretation of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR), allowing quantification of various parameters without the need for intervention by a medical professional.
It automatically identifies cases with normal left and right ventricle wall motion (regional contractility), aimed at increasing awareness for the cases with suspicious wall motion abnormalities to the reporting physicians.

Intended Use Statements
Intended use (according to CE) AI4CMR is an image analysis software for postprocessing of cardiac magnetic resonance images (CMR), which are used for assessment of cardiac diseases. AI4CMR uses artificial intelligence and is intended to automize cardiac segmentation allowing instantaneous quantification of ventricular volumes, myocardial mass, ejection fraction of heart ventricles and to automatically assess ventricle wall motion.
