Objectives: To develop and validate a radiomics model for distinguishing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pneumonia from influenza virus pneumonia. Materials and Methods: A radiomics model was developed on the basis of 56 patients with COVID-19 pneumonia and 90 patients with influenza virus pneumonia in this retrospective study. Radiomics features were extracted from CT images. The radiomics features were reduced by the Max-Relevance and Min-Redundancy algorithm and the least absolute…

Explainable Machine Learning for COVID-19 Pneumonia Classification With Texture-Based Features Extraction in Chest Radiography
The explainable model showed the importance of the middle left and superior right lung zones in classifying COVID-19 pneumonia from other lung patterns, and the best classification model was XGBoost.


Radiomics nomogram for the prediction of 2019 novel coronavirus pneumonia caused by SARS-CoV-2
A radiomics model showed good performance for prediction 2019 novel coronavirus pneumonia and favorable discrimination for other types of pneumonia on CT images and may help in clinical decision-making.
A COVID-19 risk score combining chest CT radiomics and clinical characteristics to differentiate COVID-19 pneumonia from other viral pneumonias
The risk scores depicting the correlation of CT radiomics and clinical factors with CO VID-19 could be used to accurately identify patients with COVID-19, which would have clinically translatable diagnostic and therapeutic implications from a precision medicine perspective.
CT-based radiomics combined with signs: a valuable tool to help radiologist discriminate COVID-19 and influenza pneumonia
CT-based radiomics combined with signs might be a potential method for distinguishing COVID-19 and influenza pneumonia with satisfactory performance.
COVID-19 pneumonia: CT findings of 122 patients and differentiation from influenza pneumonia
The presence of rounded opacities and interlobular septal thickening, with the absence of nodules and tree-in-bud sign, and with the typical peripheral distribution, may help to differentiate COVID-19 from influenza.

OBJECTIVE. The objective of our study was to determine the misdiagnosis rate of radiologists for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and evaluate the performance of chest CT in the diagnosis and
Performance of radiologists in differentiating COVID-19 from viral pneumonia on chest CT
Radiologists in China and the United States distinguished COVID-19 from viral pneumonia on chest CT with high specificity but moderate sensitivity.
Chest CT Findings in Patients With Coronavirus Disease 2019 and Its Relationship With Clinical Features
The common chest CT findings of COVID-19 are multiple ground glass opacity, consolidation, and interlobular septal thickening in both lungs, which are mostly distributed under the pleura.

The radiologic findings reflect the variable extents of the histopathologic features: diffuse alveolar damage, intraalveolar hemorrhage, and interstitial (intrapulmonary or airway) inflammatory cell infiltration.
Correlation of Chest CT and RT-PCR Testing in Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in China: A Report of 1014 Cases
Chest CT has a high sensitivity for diagnosis of CO VID-19 and may be considered as a primary tool for the current COVID-19 detection in epidemic areas, as well as for patients with multiple RT-PCR assays.
Radiomics Analysis of Computed Tomography helps predict poor prognostic outcome in COVID-19
This research proposed a non-invasive and quantitative prognostic tool for predicting poor outcome in patients with COVID-19 based on CT imaging and might suggest that the chest CT radiomics signature of COvid-19 is more effective and ideal to predict poor outcomes in the late-phase CO VID-19 patients.
