Recent research on COVID-19 suggests that CT imaging provides useful information to assess disease progression and assist diagnosis, in addition to help understanding the disease. There is an increasing number of studies that propose to use deep learning to provide fast and accurate quantification of COVID-19 using chest CT scans. The main tasks of interest are the automatic segmentation of lung and lung lesions in chest CT scans of confirmed or suspected COVID-19 patients. In this study, we…

The diagnosis of COVID-19 disease is proposed using a novel deep Convolutional Neural Network model by using only ECG trace images created from ECG signals of COvid-19 infected patients based on the abnormalities caused by the CO VID-19 virus on the cardiovascular system.
ECONet: Efficient Convolutional Online Likelihood Network for Scribble-based Interactive Segmentation
An efficient convolutional neural networks that can be learned online while the annotator provides scribble-based interaction is proposed, achieving 16% higher Dice score while reducing execution time by 3$\times$ and requiring 9000 lesser scribbles-based labelled voxels.
Detection of Covid-19 through Cough and Breathing Sounds using CNN
The basic idea is to use sound data, in this case, cough sounds, breathing sounds and speech sounds to isolate its characteristics and deduce if it belongs to a person who is infected or not, based on the trained model analysis.
Generalized Wasserstein Dice Loss, Test-time Augmentation, and Transformers for the BraTS 2021 challenge
This paper explores strategies to increase model robustness without increasing inference time by exploring the inclusion of a transformer in the bottleneck of the U-Net architecture and adopts an efficient test time augmentation strategy for faster and robust inference.
A Plug-and-play Attention Module for CT-Based COVID-19 Segmentation
A plug-and-play spatial attention module is designed, on the basis of attention, increased positional offset, effective aggregate advanced features, and improve the accuracy of existing models, to solve the problems in segmentation of the slice from the CT slice.
Application of machine learning in CT images and X-rays of COVID-19 pneumonia
By providing scientific methods for image recognition, segmentation, and evaluation, this work summarized the latest developments in the application of artificial intelligence in COVID-19 lung imaging, and provided guidance and inspiration to researchers and doctors who are fighting the CO VID-19 virus.
Precise Segmentation of COVID-19 Infected Lung from CT Images Based on Adaptive First-Order Appearance Model with Morphological/Anatomical Constraints
