A three-minute artificial intelligence (AI)-based chest x-ray test that might speed up emergency department triage of suspected COVID-19 patients with respiratory symptoms has been created by Bering Limited.

The study, which was funded by Innovate UK and conducted by Scotland's Industrial Centre for AI Research in Digital Diagnostics (iCAIRD), used Canon Medical Research Europe's Safe Haven Artificial Intelligence Platform (SHAIP) and datasets from the Glasgow Safe Haven.

A new AI algorithm gave an accurate COVID-19 result in a test environment in under three minutes, with performance on par with four certified radiologists, according to an article published recently in Scientific Reports.

The research was conducted in partnership with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
