After more than two years since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the pressure of this crisis continues to devastate globally. The use of chest X-ray (CXR) imaging as a complementary screening strategy to RT-PCR testing is not only prevailing but has greatly increased due to its routine clinical use for respiratory complaints. Thus far, many visual perception models have been proposed for COVID-19 screening based on CXR imaging. Nevertheless, the accuracy and the generalization capacity…

SS-CXR: Multitask Representation Learning using Self Supervised Pre-training from Chest X-Rays

The proposed paradigm shows robust performance in multiple downstream tasks which demonstrates the success of the pre-training, and the performance of thePre-trained models on data with significant drift during test time proves the learning of a better generic representation.



COVID-Net CXR-2: An Enhanced Deep Convolutional Neural Network Design for Detection of COVID-19 Cases From Chest X-ray Images

COVID-Net CXR-2 is introduced, an enhanced deep convolutional neural network design for COVID-19 detection from CxR images built using a greater quantity and diversity of patients than the original CO VID-Net, and explainedability-driven performance validation was used to gain deeper insights in its decision-making behavior.

COVID-Net CXR-S: Deep Convolutional Neural Network for Severity Assessment of COVID-19 Cases from Chest X-ray Images

The ultimate goal for the open source release of COVID-Net CXR-S is to act as a catalyst for clinical scientists, machine learning researchers, as well as citizen scientists to develop innovative new clinical decision support solutions for helping clinicians around the world manage the continuing pandemic.

COVID-Net: a tailored deep convolutional neural network design for detection of COVID-19 cases from chest X-ray images

COVID-Net is introduced, a deep convolutional neural network design tailored for the detection of COVID-19 cases from chest X-ray (CXR) images that is open source and available to the general public, and COVIDx, an open access benchmark dataset comprising of 13,975 CXR images across 13,870 patient patient cases.

Towards computer-aided severity assessment: training and validation of deep neural networks for geographic extent and opacity extent scoring of chest X-rays for SARS-CoV-2 lung disease severity

The results are promising and suggest that the use of deep neural networks on CXRs could be an effective tool for computer-aided assessment of SARS-CoV-2 lung disease severity, although additional studies are needed before adoption for routine clinical use.

BIMCV COVID-19+: a large annotated dataset of RX and CT images from COVID-19 patients

This paper describes BIMCV COVID-19+, a large dataset from the Valencian Region Medical ImageBank (BIMCV) containing chest X-ray images CXR (CR, DX) and computed tomography (CT) imaging of COVID-19+

MEDUSA: Multi-Scale Encoder-Decoder Self-Attention Deep Neural Network Architecture for Medical Image Analysis

To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first “single body, multi-scale heads” realization of self-attention and enables explicit global context among selective attention at different levels of representational abstractions while still enabling differing local attention context at individual levels of abstractions.

COVID-19 Image Data Collection

The initial COVID-19 open image data collection was created by assembling medical images from websites and publications and currently contains 123 frontal view X-rays.

Identity Mappings in Deep Residual Networks

The propagation formulations behind the residual building blocks suggest that the forward and backward signals can be directly propagated from one block to any other block, when using identity mappings as the skip connections and after-addition activation.
