Xi'an Zhizhen Intelligent Technology Co -- a company located in Xi'an High-tech Industries Development Zone (XHTZ) -- has participated in the development of a new intelligent diagnosis system for the novel coronavirus pneumonia, which has achieved breakthrough progress, according to XHTZ officials.

The system has passed project acceptance and will be used in national frontline anti-epidemic clinical departments, they added.

Combining multi-modal data such as CT image data, epidemiology, laboratory science and clinical elements, it is based on a medical image and clinical information AI analysis model developed from the real data of confirmed patients.

It can complete chest screening of suspected cases in a short period of time and perform a comprehensive analysis of clinical and imaging based on guidelines, which significantly improves the diagnosis of the coronavirus.

The developers said it is expected to greatly reduce the workload of clinicians and imaging physicians, while enabling patients to obtain early diagnosis and timely treatment, to improve their prognosis and reduce mortality.

XHTZ officials said that since the outbreak, the zone had encouraged a batch of major scientific and technological research projects in the prevention and treatment of the epidemic, with funding support of up to 5 million yuan ($714,898.48).

At present, in addition to Xi'an Zhizhen Intelligent Technology Co, dozens of companies in the zone have actively participated in scientific and technological research to help prevent and control the epidemic.

Officials said that many of the technologies and products are being used in the national epidemic prevention and control work.
