Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
covid-19 pneumonia related patients
The study aims to collect the highest number possible of lung CT scan images performed in patients with COVID-19, in order to obtain a large sample size that will allow us to characterize the extent of lung injury, the presence of specific patterns of lung alteration, and their potential association with the outcome of patients - in view of assisting the medical staff in better understanding the grade of the severity impairment in these patients which might be potentially candidates to more intensive therapeutic strategies.
Other: Lung CT scan analysis in COVID-19 patients
This research project will evaluate the morphological characteristics of the lung by CT scan analysis in COVID-19 patients which will be identified as specific patterns using artificial intelligence technology and their impact on outcome.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. A qualitative analysis of parenchymal lung damage induced by COVID-19 [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    Describe the parenchymal lung damage induced by COVID-19 through a qualitative analysis with chest CT through artificial intelligence techniques.

  2. A quantitative analysis of parenchymal lung damage induced by COVID-19 [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    Describe the parenchymal lung damage induced by COVID-19 through a quantitative analysis with chest CT through artificial intelligence techniques.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The potential impact of parenchymal morphological CT scans in patients with severe moderate respiratory failure. [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    The potential impact of parenchymal morphological CT scans in patients with severe moderate respiratory failure assessed as intensive care mortality.

  2. The potential impact of parenchymal morphological CT scans in patients with severe moderate respiratory failure. [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    The potential impact of parenchymal morphological CT scans in patients with severe moderate respiratory failure assessed as hospital mortality.

  3. The potential impact of parenchymal morphological CT scans in patients with severe moderate respiratory failure. [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    The potential impact of parenchymal morphological CT scans in patients with severe moderate respiratory failure assessed as days free from mechanical ventilation.

  4. Automated segmentation of lung scans of patients with COVID-19 and ARDS. [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    The hypothesis is that the uso of deep neural network models for lung segmentation in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in animal models and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in patients that could be applied to self-segment the lungs of COVID-19 patients through a learning transfer mechanism with artificial intelligence.

  5. Knowledge of chest CT features in COVID-19 patients and their detail through the use of machine learning and other quantitative techniques. [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    Expand the knowledge of chest CT features in COVID-19 patients and their detail through the use of machine learning and other quantitative techniques comparing CT patterns of COVID-19 patients to those of patients with ARDS.

  6. The ability within which the analysis of artificial intelligence that uses deep learning models can be used to predict clinical outcomes [ Time Frame: Until patient discharge from the hospital (approximately 6 months) ]
    Determine the capacity within which the artificial intelligence analysis that uses deep learning models can be used to predict clinical outcomes from the analysis of the characteristics of the chest CT obtained within 7 days of hospital admission; combining quantitative CT data with clinical data.
