The COVID-19 pandemic is an ongoing global health crisis. CAD4COVID-CT is a software product that takes a single chest CT scan from a subject as input, in the form of a DICOM image, and produces several outputs. The intended user of the CAD4COVID-CT software is a healthcare professional such as a radiologist, radiographer or clinical officer.
The outputs include a segmentation of the lungs and lobes in the scan, a segmentation of the abnormalities detected in the scan, scores indicating for each lobe and the lungs overall which percentage is affected by abnormalities, and severity scores on lung and lobar level based on the percentage scores. CAD4COVID-CT can be used to support the user in the diagnosis, evaluation and documentation of pulmonary tissue images (e.g. abnormalities) from CT thoracic datasets of patients with suspected COVID-19.
SmartCAD | COVID-19 combines this algorithm with Smart Reporting’s popular COVID-19 reporting template: The SmartCAD | COVID-19 system enables analysis of chest CT images with CAD4COVID-CT and transfers algorithm results directly into a structured report. This report can be extended, modified, and exported by the user.
