AI software for the automated detection of covid-19 infection on chest CT

Project description

Covid-19 detection in a matter of minutes

The Covid-19 pandemic requires new methods for easy, fast and reliable detection. Kits forreverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) are used for testing, but the results are not immediate. Studies suggest that computer tomography (CT) can be used instead. The EU-funded CoronAI project will develop an artificial intelligence (AI) solution that automatically analyses chest CT scans and assesses the likelihood and the severity of the Covid-19 infection within a few minutes. The technology receives an image from the CT scanner, analyses it and returns an easy-to-read report on the level of suspicion of Covid-19 and the degree of lung damage. The solution will assist medical staff to triage potential Covid-19 patients and serve as a caseregistry for management reporting and monitoring of a potential new outbreak.
