The SARS-CoV-2 is quickly spreading worldwide resulting in millions of infection and death cases. As a consequence, it is increasingly important to diagnose the presence of COVID-19 infection regardless of the technique applied. To this end, this work deals with the problem of COVID-19 classification using Computed Tomography (CT) images. Precisely, a new feature-based approach is proposed by exploiting axial CT lung acquisitions in order to differentiate COVID-19 versus healthy Computed Tomography (CT) images. In particular, first-order statistical measures as well as numerical quantities extracted from the autocorrelation function are investigated with the aim to provide an efficient classification process ensuring satisfactory performance results.

Abstract

The SARS-CoV-2 is quickly spreading worldwide resulting in millions of infection and death cases. As a consequence, it is increasingly important to diagnose the presence of COVID-19 infection regardless of the technique applied. To this end, this work deals with the problem of COVID-19 classification using Computed Tomography (CT) images. Precisely, a new feature-based approach is proposed by exploiting axial CT lung acquisitions in order to differentiate COVID-19 versus healthy Computed Tomography (CT) images. In particular, first-order statistical measures as well as numerical quantities extracted from the autocorrelation function are investigated with the aim to provide an efficient classification process ensuring satisfactory performance results.
