The goal of this project is to apply machine learning methods to low-dose chest CTs and additional meta-information from CoViD-19 patients to perform individualized automated detection, quantification and risk assessment. Our research includes automatic quantification of infected lung regions, longitudinal analysis of patient progression and utilization of Graph Convolutional Networks for patient triage combining imaging and meta-information.

SAT.1 Bayern featured a reportage in December 2020 on the efforts of the CAMP Chair in collaboration with the Radiology of Klinikum Rechts der Isar to fight CoViD-19 and equip physicians with solutions that could further be useful for future pandemics. You can watch it here:
