Dr. Jasper Boeddinghaus - first author in Nature Medicine
Dr. Jasper Boeddinghaus from the University Heart Center is first author of a
author of a paper just published in Nature Medicine (Impact Factor 87!) on the use of
of Artificial Intelligence in the Early Diagnosis of Acute Myocardial Infarction.
Dr. Jasper Boeddinghaus has been able to conduct research on the use of artificial
intelligence in the early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, supported by the Swiss
National Science Foundation, Dr. Jasper Boeddinghaus has succeeded in using innovative
methods of artificial intelligence for patients with acute myocardial infarction - who present
to the emergency department with acute chest pain - whether a myocardial infarction is
In addition to concentration of cardiac troponin in the blood, as well as gender, age,
length of time since the onset of chest pain, ECG changes, previous cardiac diseases, and
renal function, and renal function play a role. By integrating and evaluating these
a safe rule-out or an exact rule-in of myocardial infarction could be achieved in more
patients myocardial infarction in more patients than was possible by using fixed cardiac
The work of Dr. Jasper Boeddinghaus is based, among other things, on the international
APACE study, a unique interdisciplinary collaboration between the University Heart
Center, the Emergency Center, the Clinic for Internal Medicine, the Center for Laboratory
Medicine, and the Blood Donation Center with 12 other hospitals worldwide.
In addition, the work impressively documents the clinical and scientific and scientific leadership
of the University Hospital Basel in cardiovascular medicine and the the great importance of
cardiovascular research for the University of Basel. Dr. Jasper Boeddinghaus will return to us
in April 2024 as a senior physician in Interventional Cardiology will return to us at the USB.
