Handheld Ultrasound Diagnosis of COVID-19, a CCTS COVID-19 Inventor Showcase Event
April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Turnaround times and accessibility can be an issue with existing COVID-19 diagnostic tests and there is a need for better, faster COVID-19 diagnostic tools for the masses. Register to learn how an Ohio State civil, environmental and geodetic engineering professor, Professor Alper Yilmaz, and Ph.D. student Shehan Perera combined ultrasound and AI for faster COVID-19 detection.
The novel technology combines ultrasound scans of the lung with deep learning technology to identify COVID-19. Diagnosis takes less than 10 minutes, including scanning time.
