Lunit is expanding its deployment of artificial intelligence imaging solutions at military installations in South Korea and troops overseas.
This follows a successful pilot deployment of Lunit INSIGHT CXR, its AI-powered chest X-ray analysis software, last year at Army, Navy and Air Force medical facilities, including the Armed Forces Medical Command and the Armed Forces Capital Hospital.
The company is supplying its chest X-ray analysis solution to military-run medical facilities as part of the AI Convergence Project of South Korea’s Ministry of Science and ICT and the National IT Industry Promotion Agency.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
In its fourth year with the project, Lunit is helping to further improve diagnostic and treatment services in remote areas where military forces such as Navy ships are stationed. In particular, it plans to develop a customized AI solution that will be connected to mobile X-ray imaging equipment to significantly increase access to care.
THE BIGGER TREND
Lunit has been participating in the South Korean government’s AI Convergence project since 2020 through its consortium with biotechnology company Basgen Bio.
In addition to military facilities, the Lunit INSIGHT CXR has also been deployed around the world over the past few months. Lunit recently partnered with the company Albert Einstein Israelita Hospital in Brazil and with Radlink in Singapore to improve their chest X-ray analysis capabilities using AI.
Earlier this year, Lunit revealed its plan to open a A wholly owned subsidiary in Europe to support its sales and network expansion.
