Increasing demand for AI tools in the medical field, growing focus on reducing the workload of radiologists, influx of large and complex datasets, growth in funding for AI-based start-ups, and the growing number of cross-industry partnerships and collaborations.
AI and radiomics, which are being applied to X-ray and CT scans as advanced imaging tools in the detection and follow-up of COVID-19, have been able to diagnose the presence of the infection. This is because AI algorithms and radiomics used for chest X-rays can help undertake massive screening programs. For instance, Zhongnan Hospital (China) uses AI to interpret CT scans and identify COVID-19 symptoms when human radiologists are unavailable.
