ESDS Software Solution Pvt Ltd, a Nashik based IT company, has launched a SaaS offering to detect the Covid-19 virus from Chest X-rays of the patients. According to a statement released by the company, it is a complete contactless testing procedure, where all that the health officials have to do is to collect the chest X-ray reports, upload them on a web browser and just click on the submit button. Post clicking on the submit button, it will quickly indicate whether the patient is suffering from Covid-19 or not.
“We have managed to get 95.5% accuracy with more than 60,000 sample X-rays, of which 6700 have been positive. We are now in the process of adding CTScan as well to our SaaS offering to further improve the accuracy and early detection of the Virus,” says Piyush Somani, Founder, MD & CEO at ESDS Software Solution Pvt Ltd. ESDS helps healthcare and other sectors with the cutting edge Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning technology to solve the enormous problems faced in the industry.
“With the help of the experts in the medical field, we have developed a technological solution to identify the Covid-19 patients. Our Deep Learning and advanced AI-driven platform uses the conventional X-ray platform that helps to identify corona infection from chest X-ray within 5 minutes. With the help of the available samples, we can meet the accuracy level of 100%. However, we believe that our technology would stand at least accuracy of 96%. As we get more samples of the patient over a period of time, the efficiency of platform will increase to 99.50% -100% permanently,” he adds.
There are many advantages of adopting the technology solution over the conventional testing kits. The company website has listed the important advantages over the conventional method: Reduce Testing Time: We estimate to complete the testing of a patient within 5 minutes. However, we can also perform the bulk testing to reduce the time further. Affordable: This solution is very affordable and it would drastically lower the cost (Incl x-ray cost) compared to the current testing process. Contactless testing: Health professionals do not need to physically contact the patient for the testing and the test result can be forwarded via Email/SMS to the patient or family member. Rapid Testing: This can be implementable anytime, anywhere having basic x-ray and computer systems. Hence this solution will help in rapid testing, resulting in control of the spreading of virus. Multi-layer testing: This technology can be easily used for the multi-layer testing like during the treatment or before dispatch.
Easily Scalable and Implementable across the country: As this method use the x-ray and the online software, this solution can be made available across the country (in both Rural and Urban area) that will increase the testing.
