Abstract and Introduction


COVID-19, the infectious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, has had an immense global impact since its emergence from Wuhan, China in late 2019, and its declaration by the World Health Organization as a pandemic in March 2020. As a result, the scientific community has found itself in a race against time to control the spread of the disease with efforts aimed at early disease recognition and isolation of affected patients. Medical imaging has emerged as a useful tool in this race.
