Stopping the pandemic of viral pneumonia's like Covid 19
Another tool in the armamentarium
Apart from the clinical symptoms, chest x-ray and CT scans can be a tool to diagnose viral pneumonia's in endemic zones. The chest x-ray has always been the front line modality in screening symptomatic patients. Chest x-rays have been used as a additional diagnostic tool which can be coupled with lab investigations. It has also been used for follow up of patients.
The Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) of 2002 and the H1N1 (Swine Flu) outbreak in the year 2015 are examples.
CT scan of the chest have also hastened diagnose of pneumonias especially Covid 19 before its features can be actually are seen on X-rays. Novel Corona-Virus (Covid 19) is one such viral pneumonia which can be effortlessly screened using new technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) coupled to X-ray and CT. AI can augment human imaging experts, make their job faster and reduce stress.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been used in the diagnosis of pneumonia in radio graphs and CT. It can with ease flag and triage all studies of pneumonia irrespective of the cause - bacterial or viral. At DeepTek we use a unique human in the loop system.
AI assisted screening can enhance the workflow and assist in instant decision making through a faster triage process. Patients can be subsequently followed up with further investigations which can could be a laboratory test or clinical assessment.
At DeepTek we are using state of the art technology to augment Xray and CT scans to search for Covid 19 patterns and instantly flag. We have evolved the entire workflow around them making imaging assessment, diagnosis and reporting seamless. A smart notification removes the stress out of the process of reporting.
The AI tools performs 3 key tasks - classify, localize and quantify lesion.
