InferRead CT Pneumonia

InferRead CT Pneumonia allows for screening of the COVID-19 detecting pneumonia in less than one minute. The main functionalities incorporate displaying the number of affected lung lobes, its degree of infection, the location and contouring of the lesion, assessment of the evolution of the infection and an alert system that warns if there is a suspected positive case of COVID-19. This solution is aimed to help patient triage and detect early COVID-19 positive cases.
