Improving Classification of Pneumonia in Chest X-ray (CXR) images

Publish date:

With the rise of COVID-19, medical facilities were operating beyond peak capacity. Capgemini has developed a Deep Learning based classification system that can distinguish between pneumonia and non-pneumonia cases as well as between viral (including COVID-19) and bacterial cases in seconds.

The aim of the project is to support the diagnosis of pneumonia and thus reduce the overall workload of medical staff. This MVP was presented on the AIforGood 2020 Summit organized by ITU.

The algorithm thus developed as part of our solution led to an improved classification of X-ray in the distinction between pneumonia and non-pneumonia cases, which in turn led to a reduction in the number of false negatives.

Although initially developed for accurately classifying pneumonia cases, this solution is also relevant for other fields of classification.
