United Imaging has formed a research collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) aimed at developing artificial intelligence (AI) technology for imaging of patients with COVID-19.

United's AI teams in Boston and Shanghai will collaborate with an MGH group led by Jayashree Kalpathy-Cramer, PhD, to develop AI algorithms that can be applied to standard x-ray images, according to the vendor.

After being trained using data from a large CT database, these models will then be refined with x-rays from U.S. patients in hopes of creating algorithms for detecting and quantifying COVID-19 and estimating its severity, United said. Other potential use cases will also be explored.
