Nearly all countries around the world are facing COVID-19. This crisis is inspiring unprecedented global efforts across all industries, and we are glad to offer our support. We developed CAD4COVID: an artificial intelligence software that triages COVID-19 suspects on chest X-rays images.
CAD4COVID has been developed with the intention to support triaging in resource-constrained settings and high-prevalence areas. It will become available in the week of March 30th and will be free-of-charge.
The ingenuity behind CAD4COVID uses the same technical core as our proven software for tuberculosis detection, CAD4TB. CAD4TB is a significant part of the equation because CAD4COVID was built upon the same high-quality standard as CAD4TB, which is validated by over 40 academic publications and has contributed to screening 6 million people worldwide across 40 countries.
How does it work? CAD4COVID will generate a score between 0 and 100 indicating the extent of COVID-19 related abnormalities, display such lung abnormalities through a heatmap and quantify the percentage of the lung that is affected.
