AI system detects SARS-CoV-2 on CT scans: DFKI presents method for image-based diagnosis of Corona

Apart from the commonly used PCR tests for the diagnosis of infections with SARS-CoV-2, the Corona virus can also be detected on computed tomography scans. With a new method of automated image recognition, this form of diagnosis can be refined and made more comprehensible for medical staff. In an international cooperation, the DFKI research department Interactive Machine Learning (IML) has developed an interactive AI system that, with a success rate of 92 percent, allows for one of the most precise automatic diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 using CT scans from a special, publicly available test data set in the world.
