icolung, an AI-based tool from Belgium, has been developed to analyse chest CT scans for the diagnosis, triaging, and prediction of COVID-19. Fast and accurate diagnosis of COVID-19 is key to appropriate quarantine and therapeutic measures. Standard COVID-19 tests are limited in availability, give positive/negative outcomes with no insight into disease severity, and results are delayed, often delivering false negative results. With icolung, physicians can take faster reliable and more informed treatment decisions, enabling optimal healthcare resource allocation.
