Nijmegen, 20th May 2020 – Research published in journal Radiology shows that artificial intelligence tool CAD4COVID can perform comparably to radiologists in triaging suspected COVID-19 cases by analysing chest X-rays. The software application was developed by Dutch companies Thirona and Delft Imaging to support healthcare workers, like radiologists, in the fight against the virus.  A team of researchers from the Netherlands reported that the detection of COVID-19 characteristics on chest X-ray images by CAD4COVID, is comparable to that of six independent expert readers. The tool is available free-of-charge to benefit public health surveillance and response systems worldwide.
