Virtual imaging trials optimize CT, radiography for coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

According to ARRS’ American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), virtual imaging trials using computational patient models and a human phantom with coronavirus disease (COVID-19) abnormalities via multidiagnostic confirmation of SARS-CoV-2 infection yield simulations of ‘realistic’ texture and shape–suggesting that such trials could be utilized to compare CT and radiography, improve both screening and follow-up protocols, and train artificial intelligence tools.
