Congratulations to ADD+G client Ethan Thomas for his recent 2nd place finish at the 2023 Florida State Science Fair for his project on a system for estimating the ejection fraction of a patient’s heart. Ethan’s system spatially processes video image data obtained from echocardiograms within a convolutional neural network, extracts image features, performs temporal convolutions, and after further processing, performs a linear regression to predict an ejection fraction of the heart. Ethan now advances to the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) where he will be competing against the finest high school science fair projects in the United States. We wish him the best.
Ethan worked with ADD+G shareholder Richard Warther to file a patent application on his invention.
