Title
Diagnosing COVID-19 from deep learning trained on CT scans
Summary
Diagnosing COVID19 infection from other mild respiratory diseases is a major priority to limit the current pandemic. Yet, the number of kit tests availble is dramatically low, and MDs are currently relying on CT scans as a substitute. The present projects aims to build a deep learning architecture trained to model CT scans. This deep learning architecture will then transform the incoming CT scans from infected and non-infected patients currently acquired in the clinics, in order to facilitate their discriminability.
Aims

- develop open source preprocessing pipeline of CT scans
- implement U-net deep learning architecture to model NLST data
- provide user-friendly interface to project new CT scan onto the model, and allow supervised or unsupervised analysis
