A boost for medical imaging AI in India: India-Israel innovation fund (I 4 F) greenlights new initiative

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
HYDERABAD, India & KIBBUTZ SHEFAYIM, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HealthNet Global (HNG), a part of the Apollo Hospitals Group, India and Zebra Medical Vision, one of the global leaders in AI Imaging software, Israel announced today a new collaboration that will focus on validating and deploying AI based tools at scale across India. The companies shall jointly receive support from India-Israel Industrial R&D and Technological Innovation Fund (I4F) for their $4.9 Million project to co-develop and to provide clinical validation, and evidence of the efficacy of radiology Al based tools in India as per I4F norms.

The final developed project will be able to assist as a primary screening method for major diseases in large scale screenings. For example, World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 3.6 million people with TB are missed by health systems every year and do not receive adequate care. This is primarily because patients with TB may present with mild or no symptoms, particularly early on. Many affected people arrive at clinics too late with advanced disease or multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB), which is difficult to treat and more likely to cause death. One of the key strategies to tackling TB is early diagnosis. Unfortunately, sputum testing is only 50% accurate and frequently misses the disease in its early stages. Both companies will focus on development of AI-based Chest X-ray interpretation tool for TB which can help address the gap.
