Background:
Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is a diversified group of entities affecting the pulmonary
vasculature. Early detection is pivotal in the appropriate treatment of pulmonary hypertension.
The initial and the simplest step in the detection of pulmonary hypertension is the performance
of a combination of chest radiography, transthoracic Doppler echocardiography, and ECG.
Methodology:
An extensive literature review on the role of radiology and clinical medicine in pulmonary
hypertension complication.
Results:
The study showed that Computed Tomography (CT) was the best imaging modality in the
determination of the early onset of PH. Multiple clinical medicines like epoprostenol, nitric
oxide, iloprost, and imatinib have been used to enhance and improve the exercise capacity,
cardiac output, and hemodynamic function of the patient suffering from PH.
Conclusion:
No meaningful decrease in the time from the onset of symptoms to the PH diagnosis has been
achieved in the last 20 years. However, multiple detection methods, such as the introduction of
radiology and the use of texture-based lung graph models, have been slowly bridging this gap.
Newer techniques in radiology will help in early detection of the disease and thus help in
controlling it.

Artificial Intelligence is a progressive, rapidly developing field. It has the potential to ease diagnosis, treatment and care of patients. It is vital that medical professionals are aware about Artificial Intelligence and its scope in health care. Artificial Intelligence has the capability to ease diagnosis and care. The future of medicine is Artificial Intelligence based. A survey was carried to assess the awareness levels about Artificial Intelligence and its scopes in Healthcare. A questionnaire was circulated among medical and healthcare professionals. The total participation for the study was 100. The results were collected and tabulated to be analysed using SPSS windows version 20. There was an overall positive response from the participants. 92% believed that Artificial Intelligence is the future of medicine. Recent advancements have made it imperative that the healthcare workers be aware of Artificial intelligence and its scopes. Artificial Intelligence is reaching the medical field. It is a reality that a certain level of hyperbole seems to have taken over the discussion of Artificial Intelligence in healthcare. On one hand, healthcare industrialists and researchers highlight the need for high quality health data, on the other hand, physicians are still waiting for evidence of the usefulness of these tools and wonder who will be held responsible in case of an injury due to the tool, and the other ethical factors associated with it. It can be concluded that the participants had a moderate level of knowledge about Artificial Intelligence and its scopes, which can be improved.
