Most recently, he was awarded the Gifted Educator Award, American College of Cardiology - Distinguished Awards. 

Dr. Partho Sengupta said, “Artificial intelligence technology is enabling significant advances in cardiology. Improved ECG testing through the use of AI technology offers the prospect of detecting a wider range of heart diseases through low-cost testing, allowing for earlier detection while also providing improved efficiency of the referral process to cardiology. I look forward to helping HeartSciences further advance the field of AI in cardiology.”

About HeartSciences

Heart Test Laboratories, Inc. d/b/a HeartSciences is a medical technology company focused on applying innovative AI-based technology to an ECG (also known as an EKG) to expand and improve an ECG's clinical utility. Millions of ECGs are performed every week and the Company's objective is to improve healthcare by making an ECG a far more valuable cardiac screening tool, particularly in frontline or point-of-care clinical settings. HeartSciences has one of the largest libraries of AI-ECG algorithms and intends to provide these AI-ECG algorithms on a device agnostic cloud-based solution as well as a low-cost ECG hardware platform.  Working with clinical experts, HeartSciences ensures that all solutions are designed to work within existing clinical care pathways, making it easier for clinicians to use AI-ECG technology to improve their patient’s care and lead to better outcomes. HeartSciences' first product candidate for FDA clearance, the MyoVista® wavECG™, or the MyoVista®, is a resting 12-lead ECG that is also designed to provide diagnostic information related to cardiac dysfunction which has traditionally only been available through the use of cardiac imaging. The MyoVista® also provides conventional ECG information in the same test.
