Piotr Slomka, PhD, from Cedars-Sinai discussed the results of his research during the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology in Chicago. While Slomka said some people are concerned that machines could replace people in this work, he believes there is room for both in the common goal of providing the best care possible for patients.
