congenital heart defects are changes in the function and shape of the heart that are developed during cardiac embryogenesis and are evident at birth. During prenatal ultrasounds, the OB-GYN doctor should completely review the fetal heart to determine if there is any malformation in it. In this way, when having suspicion of a heart defect, it is expected to be treated before delivery or at birth time to increase the baby’s life chance. However, congenital heart defects are not detected efficiently, which is why they cause 24% of deaths in the first year of infants’ life.

For this reason, we propose an Artificial Intelligence algorithm that accompanies doctors in the diagnosis of congenital heart defects. This project is developed within the framework of the program “DELFOS: Diagnosis, training, logistics, education, organization and monitoring of patients with congenital heart defects” and is in charge of integrating the data obtained in the stage of congenital heart defects follow-up and training of screening centers.
