Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BOSTON - Apr 08, 2020 - Allm Inc. will provide a collection of coronavirus-related pneumonia chest CT images (hereafter “COVID-19 Image Set”) to medical institutions free of charge.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is expected that the number of cases will increase globally. Currently, PCR is necessary for the definitive diagnosis, but the procedure takes time and resources, and, thus, medical professionals resort to chest CT images for quicker diagnoses. For this reason, with the cooperation of medical institutions in Japan, Allm will provide the COVID-19 Image Set to share distinctive qualities when reading images. It’ll be provided for free worldwide and regularly updated. Through Allm’s communication platform, Join, medical professionals can access the COVID-19 Image Set in its DICOM viewer feature. Join will be provided for free, and Allm hopes these efforts will help control the spread of COVID-19 around the world.
