[Abstract] In recent years, with the rapid development of artificial intelligence technology, computer science with deep learning as the core content has been widely used in the medical field. Stroke is a common cause of human death, and deep learning has great application value in stroke diagnosis and prevention. In order to evaluate the importance of deep learning technology in stroke disease, this paper conducts a systematic review of deep learning in stroke diagnosis, treatment and prediction, and also discusses the current bottlenecks and the future development prospects of deep learning technology, hoping to provide new directions for further research by clinical and medical researchers.
