The researchers are working with Providence Health Care to create the diagnosis tool

SFU Researchers and Providence Health Care (PHC) are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to better understand how to detect COVID-19 cases.

The tool, which is currently under testing in St. Paul’s Hospital, will help clinicians distinguish between COVID-19 pneumonia and non-COVID-19 pneumonia. 

It works together with other diagnosis tools like Computed Tomography (CT) scans by analyzing a chest X-ray image to help confirm if the pneumonia’s characteristics are consistent with COVID-19.
