The dataset is organized into 3 folders (covid, pneumonia , normal) and metadata.csv which contain chest X-ray posteroanterior (PA) images. X-ray samples of COVID-19 were retrieved from different sources for the unavailability of a large specific dataset. First, 613 X-ray images of COVID-19 cases were collected from the following websites: GitHub [1,2], Radiopaedia [3], The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA) [4], and the Italian Society of Radiology (SIRM) [5]. Then, instead of data being independently augmented, a dataset containing 912 already augmented images was collected from Mendeley [6]. Finally, 1525 images of pneumonia cases and 1525 X-ray images of normal cases were collected from the Kaggle repository [7] and NIH dataset [8]. A total of 4575 samples were used in the experiment, where 1525 samples were used for each case. References: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]
