AI tool gives doctors a new look at the lungs in treating COVID-19

Spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic, Princeton researchers have developed a diagnostic tool to analyze chest X-rays for patterns in diseased lungs. The new tool could give doctors valuable information about a patient’s condition, quickly and cheaply, at the point of care. Jason Fleischer, professor of electrical engineering and the project’s principal investigator, said he was inspired to create the tool after reading about COVID-19’s devastating range of attacks.
