COVID-19 is a global pandemic with far-reaching consequences, and portable ultrasound is increasingly playing a key role in its assessment. We developed the Calculated Lung Ultrasound (CLU) technique, which automatically quantifies the degree of lung involvement, allowing evaluation of disease progression and response to treatment. It includes a prognostic score, the CLU index. We seek to further develop the CLU technique, incorporate more clinical data into its prediction, correlate the CLU score with patient outcomes, evaluate its robustness and reproducibility on a large dataset, and extend it to other disease, such as pneumonia and COPD.
