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

Objective

An AI platform to support medical practitioners to screen potential COVID-19 patients using medical imaging.

Aidence is creating a new product to automatically analyse chest CT scans and diagnose the presence of corona (covid-19) viral infection. The product receives an image from the CT scanner, analyses it, and returns an easy-to-read report on the most likely diagnosis. This is done in the background fully automatically and the report is available for medical staff within a few minutes.

Studies indicate CT is as least as sensitive as the current RT-PCR kit for testing, and is very fast. It is useful in case no kits are available, or when they are inconclusive, and/or radiology staff is unavailable or untrained.

This product can be used for triaging as well as longer-term monitoring and early warning for future outbreaks. Because the solution will be operating on all CT chest scans and fully automated, once deployed in hospitals around Europe it will also serve as a case registry for management reporting and tracking of a new potential corona outbreak.
