COVID-19 Grand Challenge

Assessing the suspicion and severity of COVID-19 in a CT scan

Diagnostic imaging with computed tomography (CT) and chest X-ray are proving increasingly important in detecting and assessing disease severity of COVID-19. To aid in the clear communication between radiologists and clinicians the Radiological Society of the Netherlands (NVvR) has proposed a standardised reporting system, CO-RADS, for assessing the suspicion and severity of COVID-19 in a CT scan. In this project, an existing platform,​ (with elements of the the EYRA benchmark platform, where suitable), will be furthered to enable the development and deployment of machine learning algorithms for automated scoring of CT scans using the CO-RADS system.
