Allm Provides Diagnostic Data Set to Support the Fight Against COVID-19
Product News Apr 17, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is expected that the number of cases will increase globally. Currently, PCR is necessary for the definitive diagnosis, but the procedure takes time and resources, and thus medical professionals resort to chest CT images for quicker diagnoses. For this reason, with the cooperation of medical institutions in Japan, Allm will provide the COVID-19 Image Set to share distinctive qualities when reading images. It will be provided for free worldwide and regularly updated.
Through Allm's communication platform, Join, medical professionals can access the COVID-19 Image Set in its DICOM viewer feature. Join will be provided for free, and Allm hopes these efforts will help control the spread of COVID-19 around the world.
The COVID-19 Image Set will be provided free of charge to medical institutions in Japan and abroad, for the purpose of improving diagnostic accuracy of COVID-19 pneumonia cases. Each case includes information such as symptoms and progress. The images provided in this initiative will be made available only for educational purposes.
Allm is also seeking cases that can be offered as COVID-19 case files.
