CT image analysis for COPD

Computed tomography is an important tool to assess lung damage from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. We develop AI tools for CT in COPD. Eva van Rikxoort was leading this research in a large group until she founded Thirona. Currently, research on COPD within DIAG continues in the Solve study funded by the Dutch Lung Foundation.
