    3D Imaging Tool Can Aid in COVID-19 Diagnoses

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    Scientists at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine (LSU Health New Orleans) showed that 3D segmented digital models of the lungs could provide a way to more clearly evaluate the extent and distribution of COVID-19-related infection in the respiratory system, as opposed to straight radiographs, CT data, or reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) alone.

    The scientists created 3D digital models from CT scans of patients hospitalized with symptoms associated with SARS-CoV-2. The CT scans were segmented into 3D digital surface models using the scientific visualization program Avizo (Thermofisher Scientific) and techniques used by the lab for evolutionary anatomy research.
