An AI model that integrates chest CT findings with clinical symptoms could be used to rapidly diagnose COVID-19 patients.

 

A COVID-19 diagnosis is routinely made by a positive test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2. However, the current tests are fraught with challenges. Not only are there shortages of kits, but they take time to complete and carry a possibility of false-negative results.

In December, 2019, an outbreak of COVID-19 emerged in Wuhan, China and quickly spread
globally. As of May 7, 2020, there were 3 672 238 confirmed infections and 254 045
deaths attributed to COVID-19. Evidence has shown that there are asymptomatic carriers
of COVID-19 who can transmit the disease to others. The virus incubation time shows
a wide range (0–24 days) and the virus displays a high infectivity. It is therefore
urgent to develop an effective therapy to treat patients with COVID-19 and to control
the spread of the causative agent, severe respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2.
