Lunit INSIGHT CXR is an artificial intelligence (AI) solution that detects 10 different radiologic findings on chest X-rays as well as tuberculosis (TB) analysis feature. It is designed to provide a quick analysis in hard-to-reach areas regardless of internet connection, with proven versatility among different X-ray devices.
The AI solution generates (1) location markings for detected lesions in colour or outline, (2) abnormality scores reflecting the likelihood that the detected lesion is abnormal, and (3) an AI “case report” that summarizes the analysis result by each finding.

Currently being used in over 80 countries
Can analyze chest radiographs from multiple chest X-ray machines
Chest X-ray image format: DICOM
Chest X-ray type: posterior-anterior chest X-ray, anterior-posterior chest X-ray
Other requirements: product requires upload of an original image in the standard DICOM-format which contains appropriate DICOM metadata information in specific DICOM tags
Structured report including:
Score indicating potential presence as well as dichotomous output of each abnormality (radiologic findings)
Score indicating potential presence as well as dichotomous output of TB based on detected radiologic findings
Specification of the location of each abnormality (radiologic finding)
Default score threshold is set at 15 for all abnormalities including TB analysis.
Chest abnormalities detected by the product for which a separate abnormality score is given include: atelectasis, calcification, cardiomegaly, consolidation, fibrosis, mediastinal widening, nodule, pleural effusion, pneumoperitoneum, pneumothorax.
Integration with X-ray Systems
Integration with PACS and Legacy Systems
Lunit INSIGHT CXR can be integrated with multiple CXR systems such as FujiFilm, GE, Samsung, Carestream, to name a few.
X ray file is transmitted from the X Ray system to Lunit AI by:
If the X-ray system has the function of sending & receiving of DICOM images via DICOM protocol, Lunit INSIGHT CXR can integrate with the system.
If the X-ray system has some limitation of receiving of DICOM images, the user can consider to integrate with Lunit INSIGHT CXR via PACS or HTTP API.
The X-ray system should generate DICOM images with the standard DICOM tags.
Lunit INSIGHT CXR can be integrated with a legacy picture archiving and communication system (PACS) which communicates via DICOM C-Store.
About 5-20 seconds per X-ray
Data Sharing & Privacy
Server location: Amazon Web Services is used. Local or national servers can be set up if required
Data are not shared with the developer
There is an option to de-identify data. The Lunit DICOM Gateway anonymizes all personal information before transferring original images to the analysis server
