The XPRIZE Pandemic Alliance and the New England Complex Systems Institute announced that they have created the COVID-19 CT Scan Collaborative to speed up the use of CT scans for the diagnosis and treatment for the novel coronavirus. The collaborative includes Mount Sinai Hospital, the Open-QIC COVID Registry, and the endcoronavirus.org network.
The collaborative's goal is to advance the development of clinical protocols for CT scanning for the management of COVID-19. Judging will be based on the following two criteria:
- COVID-19 detection, as measured against reduction of transmission
- Diagnosis, prediction, and management of the treatment of COVID-19, to be measured by the reduction in the number of COVID-19 cases that progress from mild to severe
Teams interested in competing must register here by November 1.
