Supporting radiologists in COVID-19 evaluation by applying Artificial Intelligence to images

AI-powered analysis of chest images has the potential to reduce the workload of radiologists. To help address the COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing AI algorithms for trial and clinical routine. The research prototype CT Pneumonia Analysis13 is designed to automatically identify and quantify abnormal patterns in the lung, which can be associated with COVID-19. Beyond research, the AI-Rad Companion Chest X-ray14 automatically characterizes radiographic findings for lung X-ray.

X-ray systems support initial assessment of severity and monitoring

X-ray imaging is a relevant diagnostic modality for patients with COVID-19 disease, especially if the availability of other diagnostic methods becomes limited due to a rapid increase of infected patients. In many locations isolated areas are set up for the diagnosis and therapy of COVID-19 disease to manage the increased number of patients.
