Medical imaging software solutions provider Intrasense has released, and made immediately available, a specific scanner reading protocol dedicated to COVID-19.
Following the recommendations issued by the major international professional medical societies, such as the American College of Radiology or the Société Française de Radiologie, chest scanner is indicated as a reference exam for the follow-up of patients with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis and / or initial or secondary signs of clinical aggravation (dyspnea, desaturation, etc.).
According to these guidelines, the company has developed a specific reading protocol based on the pulmonary application XP-Lung of Intrasense’s Myrian platform. This protocol incudes many clinical key points, particularly about screening, analysis of the pathological stages as well as clinical evolutions. The solution developed by Intrasense teams provides an objective measurement of the impairment and of the available pulmonary reserve of patients, allowing rapid identification of healthy and pathological areas (ground glass opacities, condensations, crazy paving, emphysematous areas). These elements provide the pulmonary reserve as well as a density histogram over a complete pulmonary volume.
This specific COVID-19 protocol, based on the pulmonary application Myrian XP-Lung, is offered free of charge to all healthcare professionals fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Access request to the solutions can be made by filling in the form available on the company’s website.
