European Initiative for Automated diagnosis and Quantitative Analysis of COVID-19 on Imaging

10 Apr, 2020

Imaging COVID-19 AI initiative is a multicenter European project to enhance computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of COVID-19 by using artificial intelligence. The project group will create a deep learning model for automated detection and classification of COVID-19 on CT scans, and for assessing disease severity in patients by quantification of lung involvement.

Many different hospitals and institutions across Europe will collaborate to rapidly develop an artificial intelligence solution in this time-sensitive research project. The AI model will be made freely available to all participants for clinical validation.

This collaborative initiative coordinated by the Netherlands Cancer Institute, together with Rovobision, the European Society of Medical Imaging Informatics (EuSoMII) and QUIBIM, has had a great response with the participation of several hospitals, radiology centres and research groups from across the world including Italy, Spain, Netherlands, India, and Korea among others [map showing the European hospitals collaborating in the Imaging COVID-19 AI initiative].
