Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasing its role in diagnosis of patients with suspicious coronary artery disease. The aim of this manuscript is to develop a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) to classify coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) in the correct Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System (CAD-RADS) category.

According to the conclusions, deep convolutional neural network (CNN) yielded accurate automated Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System (CAD-RADS) classification in patients with suspected CAD; CAD-RADS classification is significantly faster compared to human evaluation; and CNN can reduce the time of CCTA reporting in the next future.
