It is all about doing things. Assessing the higher risk of intracranial aneurysm rupture

It is possible to, in any capacity, assess the higher risk of intracranial aneurysm before it causes a life-threatening condition? How does modern medicine deal with a condition that serious and largely asymptomatic?

Follow Justyna Fercho, M.D., an ambitious young researcher, clinician and doctoral student, who, amongst her vast spectrum of activities, is currently working on the method which could assess the probability of someone having aneurysm. It could be then secured by, among others, Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) and treated before it ruptures.

The research is conducted in close cooperation with the Gdańsk University of Technology and as such will rely on machine learning and neural networks.

No such method such as this has yet been introduced. Since 80% of intracranial aneurysms are detected when they rupture, i.e. when intracranial haemorrhage occurs, Dr. Fercho’s research could indeed lead to a real breakthrough.
