April 2, 2020 — In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic raging around the globe, Vuno has decided to move quickly by joining the global coalition to help address some critical issues facing the international healthcare community today by putting artificial intelligence (AI) into work. A spokesperson said that Vuno has been inundated with requests over the last several weeks regarding how it can help doctors remain resilient and better respond to the spread of the infection and ultimately contribute to saving lives.
In an effort to help the medical community, Vuno has accelerated the development and enhancement of its exiting AI algorithms to better meet the specific needs and demands from exhausted doctors who willingly put themselves at risk to save lives in the fight against COVID-19.
With that mission in mind, the company is now offering a suite of AI solutions Vuno Med-LungQuant and Vuno Med-Chest X-ray for COVID-19, encompassing both lung X-ray and computed tomography (CT) modalities respectively all at once. Our one-stop service offering will allow users to choose one or both algorithms to use depending on their own needs by simply visiting one website without the hassle of moving from different AI systems.
The special versions of two AI products for COVID-19 were released this week. These are web-based services available at https://covid19.vunomed.com/ for free for anyone who wants to use theAI algorithms to analyze a chest X-ray or CT scan.
AI Solutions Offered
The common theme of the two AI solutions is to empower healthcare providers to provide better patient care by assisting them in the screening, diagnosis and management of COVID-19 infected patients using our AI technology. They are developed to help protect healthcare providers from burnout or help overworked doctors on the edge of exhaustion in virus fight make a speedier and more accurate diagnostic decision in a difficult time like now. In addition, our cloud-based service offering will enable remote result reading and tracking of the status of patients infected with COVID-19, where radiologists are not readily available.
In Korea, two local governments in Gangwon Province and a major hospital in Daegu, the hardest-hit area are actively using VUNO Med-Chest X-ray in response to the outbreak. They stated that the instant and visualized results with a colored heatmap from the solution are very helpful to triage patients with suspected infection of the virus, especially when they cannot see the X-ray images clearly due to fogged goggles they have to wear all day long.
