Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, millions of people have succumbed to this deadly virus. Many attempts have been made to devise an automated method of testing that could detect the virus. Various researchers around the globe have proposed deep learning based methodologies to detect the COVID-19 using Chest X-Rays. However, questions have been raised on the presence of bias in the publicly available Chest X-Ray datasets which have been used by the majority of the researchers. In…

Transfer Learning Based Multiclass Classification For Covid-19 Detection Using Chest X-Rays

This study aims to develop a transfer learning based multi-class classifier using Chest X-Ray images which will classify the X- Ray images in 3 classes (Covid-19, Pneumonia, Normal) and it has been observed that DenseNet201 is the best deep learning model with 82.2% accuracy.

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.

A critic evaluation of methods for COVID-19 automatic detection from X-ray images

Can AI Help in Screening Viral and COVID-19 Pneumonia?

The aim of this paper is to propose a robust technique for automatic detection of COVID-19 pneumonia from digital chest X-ray images applying pre-trained deep-learning algorithms while maximizing the detection accuracy.

CheXpert: A Large Chest Radiograph Dataset with Uncertainty Labels and Expert Comparison

A labeler is designed to automatically detect the presence of 14 observations in radiology reports, capturing uncertainties inherent in radiograph interpretation, in CheXpert, a large dataset that contains 224,316 chest radiographs of 65,240 patients.

U-Net: Convolutional Networks for Biomedical Image Segmentation

It is shown that such a network can be trained end-to-end from very few images and outperforms the prior best method (a sliding-window convolutional network) on the ISBI challenge for segmentation of neuronal structures in electron microscopic stacks.

Identifying Medical Diagnoses and Treatable Diseases by Image-Based Deep Learning

Common pitfalls and recommendations for using machine learning to detect and prognosticate for COVID-19 using chest radiographs and CT scans

It is found that none of the models identified are of potential clinical use due to methodological flaws and/or underlying biases, which is a major weakness, given the urgency with which validated COVID-19 models are needed.

ESRGAN: Enhanced Super-Resolution Generative Adversarial Networks

This work thoroughly study three key components of SRGAN – network architecture, adversarial loss and perceptual loss, and improves each of them to derive an Enhanced SRGAN (ESRGAN), which achieves consistently better visual quality with more realistic and natural textures than SRGAN.

Public Covid-19 X-ray datasets and their impact on model bias – A systematic review of a significant problem

Most of the datasets utilised in 201 papers published in peer-reviewed journals, are not among these 9 datasets, thus leading to models with high risk of bias, raising concerns about the suitability of such models for clinical use.
