COVIDx-US – An open-access benchmark dataset of ultrasound imaging data for AI-driven COVID-19 analytics

by   Ashkan Ebadi, et al.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a devastating effect on the health and well-being of the global population. Apart from the global health crises, the pandemic has also caused significant economic and financial difficulties and socio-physiological implications. Effective screening, triage, treatment planning, and prognostication of outcome plays a key role in controlling the pandemic. Recent studies have highlighted the role of point-of-care ultrasound imaging for COVID-19 screening and prognosis, particularly given that it is non-invasive, globally available, and easy-to-sanitize. Motivated by these attributes and the promise of artificial intelligence tools to aid clinicians, we introduce COVIDx-US, an open-access benchmark dataset of COVID-19 related ultrasound imaging data that is the largest of its kind. The COVIDx-US dataset was curated from multiple sources and consists of 93 lung ultrasound videos and 10,774 processed images of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia, non-SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia, as well as healthy control cases. The dataset was systematically processed and validated specifically for the purpose of building and evaluating artificial intelligence algorithms and models.
