Abstract: Acute Myocardial Infarction (MI) is a severe heart disease which is caused by abruptly reduced blood supply in coronary arteries due to prolonged ischemia condition. It is a type of irreversible necrosis of cardiac muscles, so need to predict this Acute MI in early stages of cardiac ischemia. This paper presents a new computer- aided diagnosis system (CAD) for the early prediction of Acute Myocardial infarction(MI) based on the machine learning algorithms using Myocardial perfusion single photon emission computed tomography(SPECT) images. Myocardial perfusion SPECT image database containing processed SPECT images collected from the 267 patients at cardiac rest study and cardiac stress study to examine the heart blood supply. This processed data are trained using random forest learning algorithm and a result of this proposed model is compared with other six machine learning algorithms. Eight Performance metrics of machine learning are used to evaluate the output of this proposed model. This CAD system helps to evaluate the presence of MI in the cardiac SPECT images, reduce the diagnosis cost due to automation learning and save the life of the cardiac patients
