The advancement of technology has created a huge scope and requirement for transforming the image into a high-visibility image. Here, transforming an image into a high-visibility image means to convert a low-visibility image into a high-visibility image. Super-resolution has many applications worldwide like in medical industries, surveillance, satellite photography, the study of the galaxy, etc. Also, COVID-19 is a monstrous threat to earth. Doctors are predicting whether the patient is having the coronavirus or not via X-Rays and CT-Scans. These scans sometimes miss little details because of the blurriness/low-visibility of the image. This problem can be overcome by using the Super-resolution convolutional neural network (SRCNN). The purpose of the study is the classification of whether the person has the coronavirus or not becomes very accurate by using the SRCNN model. For the transformation of a low-visibility image into a high-visibility image, SRCNN and for classifying whether the person is having coronavirus or not a convolutional neural network (CNN) is used. Our models are trained and tested on four datasets, which are Set5, Set14, COVID-chest-X-Ray dataset, and chest-X-Ray-pneumonia. Our results depict that after applying super-resolution on the X-Rays or the CT-Scans, the classification of COVID-19 attained an accuracy of 95.31% which is higher if compared to the classification of COVID-19 without image super-resolution that attained an accuracy of 92.19%. These were the results after running the model for 20 epochs. Hence, with the help of the SRCNN model, the classification of COVID-19 is much easier and accurate as compared to without the image super-resolution technique. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
