Abstract

The COVID-19 epidemic has become a major safety and health threat worldwide. Imaging diagnosis is one of the most effective ways to screen COVID-19. This project utilizes several open-source or public datasets to present an open-source dataset of COVID-19 CXRs, named COVID-19-CXR-Dataset, and introduces a deep convolutional neural network model. The model validates on 740 test images and achieves 87.3% accuracy, 89.67 % precision, and 84.46% recall, and correctly classifies 98 out of 100 COVID-19 x-ray images in test set with more than 81% prediction probability under the condition of 95% confidence interval. This project may serve as a reference for other researchers aiming to advance the development of deep learning applications in medical imaging.

Artificial Intelligence applied to chest X-Ray images for the automatic detection of COVID-19. A thoughtful evaluation approach
Current standard protocols used in the clinic for diagnosing COVID-19 include molecular or antigen tests, generally complemented by a plain chest X-Ray. The new analysis aims to reduce the significant number of false negatives of these tests, but also to provide complementary evidence about the presence and severity of the disease.

A Deep Convolutional Neural Network for COVID-19 Detection Using Chest X-Rays
Twice transfer learning and output neuron keeping showed promising results. Words on the X-rays can influence the networks' predictions. But this had only a very small effect on accuracy. Heatmaps improve the interpretability of the deep neural networks.
