Radiography

Image: Generated heatmaps appropriately highlighted abnormalities in the lung fields in those images accurately labeled as COVID-19 positive (A-C) in contrast to images which were accurately labeled as negative for COVID-19 (D). Intensity of colors on the heatmap correspond to features of the image that are important for prediction of COVID-19 positivity (Photo courtesy of Northwestern University)

New AI Platform Detects COVID-19 on Chest X-Rays with Accuracy and Speed

A new artificial intelligence (AI) platform that detects COVID-19 by analyzing X-ray images of the lungs is about 10 times faster as well as 1-6% more accurate than individual specialized radiologists. More...
