We're excited about the potential this partnership holds for advancing chest X-ray practices, particularly in ICUs and ERs," said Brandon Suh, CEO of Lunit.

Lunit INSIGHT CXR, an AI-powered chest X-ray analysis solution, stands out for its capability to detect 10 of the most common lung abnormalities, including lung cancer, pneumonia, and pneumothorax. Lunit INSIGHT CXR Triage is an FDA-cleared AI solution that identifies pre-specified critical findings, such as pleural effusion or pneumothorax, on frontal chest X-ray images. The software then flags the images in the Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS)/workstation, enabling a prioritized review process for timely intervention.
