Detection, Diagnosis and Localization of Pediatric Pneumonia Based on Pattern Detection in Chest Radiographic Images

We have developed an ML-based decision support system to detect pneumonia in pediatric chest x-ray radiographs to expedite accurate diagnosis of the pathology.
Our results suggest that a suite of targeted ML tools can be used to support multi-faceted diagnosis of childhood pneumonia in resource-constrained settings, compensating for the shortage of expensive equipment and specialists. Further research is necessary to determine the feasibility of applying this algorithm in a clinical setting and to test improved care and outcomes compared with current assessment of the pediatric community-acquired pneumonia.
