Welcome to our free virtual clinical environment that helps clinicians to become better at recognising the early CT signs of COVID-19.
This is available to every clinician, world-wide, free-of-charge and you access it simply by registering.
Why is this important?
As has now been proven, early diagnosis of COVID-19 is essential for early patient treatment and isolation and lung CT scans have been shown to be a critical tool for the diagnosis and management of COVID-19.
The number of patients suffering from this life threatening illness has outpaced the numbers of skilled staff required to accurately diagnose the lung CT scans. In spite of all of the preventative measures being put in place, early detection of high risk cases remains critical to keep the mortality rate to a minimum.
Our tool will help existing staff to accurately diagnose cases faster and it will provide rapid training of additional staff to quickly acquire CT interpretation skills which are required as the number of patients escalates rapidly especially in the developing world.
Trials using the DetectED-X approach have demonstrated a 34% improvement in the accuracy of diagnosing difficult cases
How it works
DetectED-X is a browser based application that allows clinicians to improve their detection performance on Mac or PC.

View and judge
In your own reading environment, you will view and judge a set of Lung CT cases (with specific prevalence) via your own computer with connectivity to the internet.
You will view the cases in DICOM format on the computer and mark the cases using online scoring software.
Once you have completed the case sets you are presented with results describing your performance using several metrics including sensitivity, specificity, true positive, true negative, false positive and false negative scores.
Also a reader specific image file is instantly generated that enables you to review all images you have just read and examine truth alongside correct and incorrect decisions that you made for each image.
You’ll be given a certificate that recognises your completion that can be used to prove your CPD/CME points earned.
Scores are stored anonymously so that a local or national evaluation of performances can be made which allows reference standards to be defined.
