Computer Algorithm Highly Accurate at Detecting PAH in Scleroderma

A computer algorithm called DETECT correctly identified all cases of a potentially life-threatening type of high blood pressure in a group of people with scleroderma in a recent study. The algorithm outperformed standard methods, showing potential as an effective means of screening SSc patients for developing pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), according to researchers. The investigators noted that PAH — which is often not identified using standard methods such as ultrasounds of the heart — benefits most…
