Aortic valve diseases, specifically aortic valve stenosis and regurgitation, are common conditions encountered in clinical cardiology practice. The emergence of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has resulted in a renewed interest in the diagnosis and management of these conditions. Artificial intelligence (AI) has the ability to assist with all components of the patient journey, from initial diagnosis, medical imaging, and planning of TAVR.
